posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The New York International Children's Film Festival (NYICFF) will be screening Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away film this Saturday and Sunday at the IFC Center in New York. The movie will be shown in English. The 2001 film is the only anime to have won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
Earlier this year, the NYICFF hosted the U.S. premieres of three anime features and several shorts, including the Summer Wars family anime film from The Girl Who Leapt Through Time director Mamoru Hosoda, MADHOUSE's Mai Mai Miracle anime film, and Production I.G's Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror fantasy film.
