The Gold Coast Film Festival 2010, presented by Australia Fair Shopping Centre is proud to announce the attendance of a special guest: renowned voice actress Yuko Miyamura
will be appearing to introduce Evangelion
2.0: You Can [Not] Advance, which screens as part of the Anime showcase at this year's festival.
The Anime Showcase is co presented by the Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast, and is supported by the Japanese Society of Gold Coast. It includes screenings of new release anime films and free anime seminars and demonstrations. The Anime Showcase is funded by the Gold Coast City Council, Councillor Jan Grew Division 11 and the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).

Miyamura can be heard across a range of media, from her work as Chun-Li in the popular video game series Street Fighter to the animes Detective Conan
(aka Case Closed
) and Wedding Peach
. Arguably her most popular role, however, is that of Asuka Langley in the hit anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion
as well as the subsequent movies. Reprising the role for the first time in eleven years, Miyamura will be joining the festival to talk about the reboot of one of Japan's most popular animated television shows.Evangelion
2.0: You Can [Not] Advance is the second film in the reboot of Neon Genesis Evangelion
, one of the most successful anime series of all time. Telling the story of Asuka and fellow pilots Shinji and Rai, three children destined to defend Tokyo-3 from monstrous entities known as Angels, Evangelion
2.0 is epic, dark, and a lot of fun for fans of the original series and newcomers alike.
