PRODUCTION I.G FEATURED at the 11th HOLLAND ANIMATION FILM FESTIVAL

The forthcoming 11th Holland Animation Film Festival (HAFF), one of the
world's most respected animation film festivals, will dedicate a
special
showcase to Production I.G Along with the Dutch premiere of Mamoru
Oshii's "Tachigui: The Amazing Lives of the Fast Food Grifters", and
the
screenings of "Ghost in the Shell" (1995), "Innocence" (2004) and "Kill
Bill: Vol.1" (2003), the festival features a special program that will
be focusing on some of I.G's less known aspects, such as promo videos
and commercial films. For this reason, the program has been
entitled"Production I.G in Detail". Fans of more "traditional" yet
state-of-the-art animation should not miss the screening of the full
first episode of "Le Chevalier D'Eon", Kazuhito Furuhashi's gothic
mystery TV series currently aired in Japan on WOWOW and coproduced with
Shochiku.

Some titles have also been selected for the HAFF's competitive
sections,
being another opportunity to watch "unusual" I.G¡Çs works: Mylene
Farmer's
acclaimed video clip "Peut-etre toi", Katsuhito Ishii's commercial
films
for "Kirin Beverages", and two of our best TV opening films: "Ghost in
the Shell S.A.C. 2nd GIG" (made for Japan domestic terrestrial
broadcast.ing) and the third opening from "Blood+", definitely a little
masterpiece of mixed figurative styles, directed by one of I.G's most
promising young animators, Naoyoshi Shiotani.

Furthermore, Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President & CEO of Production I.G will
be attending the event as member of the jury for the International
Short
Independent Films Section.
