Production I.G, Hiroyuki Okiura's film won grand prize at earlier NY Int'l Children's Film Fest

The San Francisco International Children's Film Festival will screen Production I.G and Hiroyuki Okiura's A Letter to Momo anime film on Saturday, November 10 at 5:00 p.m.

The film festival is being held at the Exploratorium at The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco from November 9-11.

A Letter to Momo follows a girl named Momo who struggles with her father's sudden passing and resulting move to the countryside. Momo finds an otherworldly surprise at her new home. The film held its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, and it opened in Japan on April 21. It received the Grand Prize for Best Feature Film at this year's New York International Children's Film Festival, won the main prize in the "Feature film" category at the Czech AniFest, and competed at France's Annecy film festival in June. GKids licensed the film and will release it in U.S. theaters to compete for the 2013 Oscars.
