PONYO "FIRST LOOK" EXCERPTS
KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE and CASTLE IN THE SKY! - Don't miss these rare 35mm theatrical presentations of two breathtaking films from animation master Hayao Miyazaki. The epic CASTLE IN THE SKY has not screened in New York City since the film's English language US premiere at NYICFF 2000, while KIKI originally screened at the festival back in 1999.

PONYO! - Be the first audience in the US to view excerpts from the newest Miyazaki film PONYO, about the friendship between a young boy, Sosuke, and an overeager goldfish who dreams of becoming human. Exclusive excerpts will be shown at all KIKI and CASTLE screenings.



PONYO - FIRST PEEK
Excerpts from the newest film by Academy Award winning animation master Hayao Miyazaki will be shown at all screenings of Castle in the Sky and Kiki's Delivery Service.

Inspired by the story The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen, Ponyo is about a friendship between a young boy Sosuke (modeled after Miyazaki's own son Goro) and a baby fish/mermaid, who longs to become human. Ponyo is being released in the US August 14 with voices by Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, and Lily Tomlin.

A young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island in the sky, site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. Castle in the Sky is an early masterpiece of storytelling and filmmaking whose imaginative and ornately detailed vision of a decaying world in constant flux presaged Miyazaki's later films like Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.

From legendary Hayao Miyazaki comes the beloved story of a resourceful young witch who uses her broom to create a delivery service, only to lose her gift of flight in a moment of self-doubt. Set in a gorgeously detailed seaside village, Kiki's Delivery Service is less about witchcraft than a beautifully timeless story of a young girl leaving home to find her own way in the world. Voiced by Kirsten Dunst as Kiki, with Phil Hartman as her black cat Jiji.
