  • [Theatrical] 1 & Only Anime Theatrical Screenings Thread

    I figure it would be a good idea of a general thread for various anime screenings in U.S. and Canada (there will still be movies that warrant individual threads). Some of these local screenings (film festivals for example) can be easily missed.

        Fantasia International Film Festival

        http://4NN.cx/.75741
        A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR MAMORU OSHII
        A towering and truly unique figure in Japanese animation, director Mamoru Oshii will be a recipient of Fantasia's Lifetime Achievement Award. From pioneering OVAs DALLOS and the haunting ANGEL'S EGG, and of course the beloved PATLABOR series, of the 1980s, through the dramatically influential global hit GHOST IN THE SHELL in the mid-'90s, to its award-winning sequel and other powerful, pensive works in the new millennium (SKY CRAWLERS, AVALON), Oshii has consistently strived to bring new ideas and in fact a whole new attitude to anime. With his meticulous and idiosyncratic near-future thrillers and dramas, linked by persistent themes, motifs and concerns, Oshii asserts a complex, deeply thoughtful and decidedly adult sensibility — while maintaining the highest technical standards in the field (and hardly confining his efforts to animation). In seeking a path to call his own, Oshii has blazed a trail for fantastic entertainment worldwide to follow.

        Mamoru Oshii will be receiving his award on our opening night, July 17, before a special screening of the new HD master of GHOST IN THE SHELL, being re-issued by Manga Entertainment and Anchor Bay Entertainment in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the original manga's publication. This will be the first time the GITS HD print has been made available outside of Japan, lovingly restored, unadulterated and awe-inspiring in its beauty.


        GIOVANNI'S ISLAND
        Japan Dir: Mizuho Nishikubo
        A gracefully executed anime from Production I.G, examining the struggles of the Japanese in the immediate aftermath of World War II, from the perspective of a child. As beautiful as it is devastating, GIOVANNI'S ISLAND received a Jury Mention at the prestigious Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Canadian Premiere


        KITE
        USA/Mexico Dir: Ralph Ziman
        The controversial and influential anime finally sees a live-action adaptation, stylishly directed by award-winning South African filmmaker Ralph Ziman (JERUSALEMA) and backed by a cast that features Samuel L. Jackson, Callan McAuliffe, and India Eisley. The film succeeds brilliantly in blending the elements that made the original material a mythical piece of art. International Premiere

                Hopefully the print of GITS they are showing will look better than whatever source material they used for this teaser.

                  DORAEMON TV episode and Giovanni's Island movie set for U.S. premiere at Anime De Summer Festival

                  LOS ANGELES, CA (June 19, 2014) – The promotion of Japanese culture organization, Japan Plus Inc., (NPO) announced today that the first episode of the beloved and iconic children's anime TV series Doraemon and the critically acclaimed 2014 animated theatrical Giovanni's Island will both make their U.S. premiere screenings at the 880-seat Aratani /Japan America Theatre in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown L.A. The free screenings are a featured part of the events and activities slated for the all-day Anime De Summer Festival taking place on the plaza grounds of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) on Saturday, July 5th.

                  “Doraemon has long been such a pop cultural phenomenon in Asia and we're grateful to be able to debut the first episode during the Anime De Summer Festival, well before its U.S. digital cable broadcast,” said Tetsu Shiota, owner of Anime Jungle and festival sponsor. “Doraemon's charm is that it can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of whether one is an anime fan or not.”

                  “Giovanni's Island is an unforgettably, moving film that's drawn early, rave reviews and just won an award at the Annecy Animation Film Festival in France,” remarked Japan Plus Inc. director and veteran animation industry producer Ken Duer. “We're looking forward to sharing this exceptional movie with our summer festival attendees.”

                  The July 5th U.S. premiere screening of Doraemon: Gadget Cat from the Future (English language dub) is scheduled for 11 am-11:30 am and 3 pm-3:30 pm, while Giovanni's Island (also making its English dub debut) is scheduled from 11:45 am-1:30 pm and 3:45 pm-5:30 pm. After the first Doraemon screening, Doraemon himself will be appearing in person to meet and take photos with festival attendees from 11:45 am-12:15 pm.

                  In addition to the screenings, Anime De Summer Festival will feature a dynamic live stage presentation starring Japanese action hero FUJIYAMA ICHIBAN from 11:30 am-11:45 am and 2:30 pm-2:45 pm. Scheduled next are the eye-catching dance performances of RIZE, an award-winning Los Angeles-based, all-girl hip hop dance team that takes the stage from 3:30 pm-3:45 pm.

                  Highlighting the family-friendly festivities will be the centerpiece attraction: the traditionally popular and highly crowd-pleasing Bon-Odori (Bon Dance) event, led by Bon Dance Specialist/Instructor Christine Inouye. Originally based on the Buddhist practice of commemorating the spirits of past ancestors with a dance of joy and appreciation during an Obon Festival, the Bon-Odori is a centuries-long, traditional folk dance that has evolved into a very unique art form of dance that is still graceful, inviting and easy enough to pick up on and participate in, regardless of age.

                  With that in mind, the summer festival's Bon Dance Instructor Ms. Inouye and Taiko player Ms. Nana encourages all cosplayers, visitors adorned in summer-time yukata and kimono, and general attendees to participate in their free, step-by-step Bon Dance lessons from 5 pm-5:30 pm. Thereafter, the actual Bon-Odori Fest takes place from 7 pm-9 pm, which will include the Bon Dance around Yagura Tower in Little Tokyo.

                  “This festival's Bon Dance will be aurally addictive with the music we have lined up and visually amazing, especially when cosplayers join in the celebration,” said Instructor Inouye. “It's fitting, since we'll be doing a new Doraemon-style Bon Dance accompanied with a Doraemon theme song. But ultimately, Bon dances are dances of joy, so age or looks or experience should not inhibit anyone. What matters most is that everyone has a great time.”

                  During all of these activities, families and visitors alike will be able to experience the delicious taste of traditional summertime festival cuisine through the various matsuri-themed food, confection and vendor booths, as well as the nontraditional, with an actual Maid Café operating from 1 pm-6:30 pm on the plaza grounds of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC).
