Festival aims to give anime universal appeal
The Asia Center and the UK Library are jointly showing three films over the course of two days as part of The Anime Film Festival.
The film festival intends to promote Japanese culture and anime films as part of the Arts Asia Festival, which runs from Nov. 6 to Nov. 13.
“We wanted to buy materials for classes, but also for students to enjoy whenever they wanted,” said Hioki Kazuko, liaison librarian for Asian Studies.
UK libraries have been acquiring films and comic books over the past year and the showcase lends the opportunity to show the new material, which is now part of the Asian collection at UK Libraries.
