More Sydney Olympics Arts Festival News
I received an e-mail from Alistair Chiu who is involved with the promotion of Japanime.
As mentioned previously the major film component of the Syndey 2000 Olympic Arts Festival will be a five day celebration of Japanese Animation, entitled: Japanime.
The big news is that Mamoru Oshii and Mitsuhisa Ishikawa from Production IG will be at Japanime for the Australian premiere of their film, Blood: The Last Vampire, on Saturday August 26, at 6:45pm. There will be a 45 minute q&a session before the film.
Japanime will be showcasing many films from Studio Ghibli, and will include the Australian Premier of Princess Mononuke as well as My Neighbours the Yamadas and Kiki's Delivery Service.
