Pacific Rim director to host discussion as part of Studio Ghibli retrospective

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is hosting a Studio Ghibli retrospective from December 13-January 3, and director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan's Labyrinth) will kick off the event by hosting a Master Class session on December 12. The class will "consider [Hayao Miyazaki's] artistry with an extended introduction and post-screening discussion of Castle in the Sky."

The Master Class is currently sold out, but a limited number of tickets will be available 10 minutes before the screening starts.

The retrospective will also include screenings of the following films:

Tickets go on sale for the screenings on December 4 for TIFF Members and on December 11 for the general public. The screenings will be held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Del Toro is developing a live-action television adaptation of Naoki Urasawa's suspense manga Monster, and he already outlined the first season's episodes so Urasawa can review it before giving permission.
