posted on by Egan Loo
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. has posted the February 15-16, 2008 dates for its international premiere of Studio 4°C's Genius Party anthologies. The center plans to screen all 14 shorts from both omnibus film collections, which feature Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop), Mahiro Maeda (Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo) Koji Morimoto (The Animatrix's "Beyond," Memories' "Magnetic Rose"), Shoji Kawamori (Macross), and ten more directors. The screenings are part of the center's Japan! festival which will also host a talk by Frederik L. Schodt (Astro Boy Essays) and a manga exhibition. Thanks, Christopher Wanamaker.
