Festival in Waterloo Ontario to Screen Cowboy Bebop: The Movie and A Tree of Palme

Excerpt from press release:

The second annual Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema (WFAC) will be held this year on November 6-7th, 2002, at the Waterloo Galaxy Cinema in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. This state-of-the-art theatre features ten screens, DTS/Dolby digital sound, two digital projectors, and stadium seating. The theatre is located conveniently 1 hour's drive from Toronto, 1.5 hours from Niagara Falls/Buffalo, or 3 hours from Windsor/Detroit.

Last year's inaugural festival featured "Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust", "Metropolis" and "Jin-roh: the Wolf Brigade". This year, we've got an even more exciting lineup planned. We are pleased to announce the first two titles on our programme:

  • "Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (2001): an action-packed all-new story of the band of bounty-hunting misfits from the fan-favourite anime TV series, "Cowboy Bebop". Action, with style.
  • "A Tree of Palme" (2002): a fantasy-adventure written and directed by Takashi Nakamura, whose earlier credits include the wonderfully imaginative "Catnapped!", as well as the anime TV series "Peter Pan" and the "Nightmare" segment of "Robot Carnival." Mr. Nakamura was also the chief animator for the classic anime film "Akira."

Additional titles will be announced shortly.
