The Cinematheque and the Vancity Theatre are co-hosting a major retrospective of the films of Studio Ghibli, the world-renowned anime studio founded in Tokyo in 1985 by animation directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. 14 Studio Ghibli films will be played from December 7, 2012 to January 3, 2013. The Cinematheque will be playing the films in original Japanese language (with English subtitles), and The Vancity Theatre will be playing them in English dub.
Frequently referred to as the Disney of Japan, Studio Ghibli is known for startlingly original animated feature films that combine dazzling visual virtuosity, vivid characterizations, and epic storytelling. These include some of the most magical, most beloved animated movies ever made, including Castle in the Sky, My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl’s Moving Castle.
Thanks to The Cinematheque, we have a few tickets to give away. Keep an eye of our social media websites for the announcement!
