NFT Japanese Animation: From manga to Miyazaki July 5, 2005

Posted by ayasawada in Uncategorized.

The NFT (National Film Theatre, London on South Bank if you didn’t know) have finally announced details of their August Anime season and the line-up is very very exciting (follow the link above). Scheduled are:

-Animation Workshop: Drawn Animation
-Kakurenbo (Hide and Seek) + Paranoia Agent Episodes 1-3
-Kiki’s Delivery Service (Majo no takkyubin)
-Makoto Shinkai in Conversation + Voices of a Distant Star (Hoshi no koe) + She and Her Cat (Kanojo to Kanojo no neko)
-Millennium Actress (Sennen Joyu)
-Perfect Blue (Yume nara samete)
-Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-hime)Steamboy
-Tokyo Godfathers
-Workshop: A Bluffers Guide to Japanese Animation

And, with the exception of the Miyazaki movies, all of them are subbed! (even the workshops! lol). Tickets will go on sale in a couple of weeks.

I am so up for watching several of these. The prospect of seeing original language Satoshi Kon movies (and Paranoia Agent!) on the big screen is a thril in itself. But the chance to see and hear Makoto Shinkai in person is electrifying!
