Anime at the BFI May 2018
London based anime fans will want to get over to the BFI
in May 2018 to catch an Anime Weekender
They'll be screening a range of titles including the soon to be released Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms
, along with the box office giant Your Name
. One Your Name screening will be on IMAX, we caught it on the colossal screen last year
and suggest you can catch it if you can.
There's so much good stuff in this season, including the charming Lu Over the Wall
. We saw it last year
and loved it.
Tucked away on the listings (and easily missed) is a complete run down of the BFI Animation 2018 Season
. This includes a delightful screening of Ghibli Classics My Neighbour Totoro
and two screenings of Spirited Away
, plus a screening of Princess Mononoke
Satoshi Kon's masterpiece Paprika
will also be shown.
Fans keen to see Akira can also catch two screenings of 30th anniversary screening: Akira
, including one on IMAX
History buffs and historic anime fans alike will be interested in Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors
a World War II propaganda film thought to be destroyed after the war.
Basically we suggest you catch one of these fantastic films on the big screen. Nothing beats watching a great anime film on a huge cinema screen. We also suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.
