Japanese Animation Films to be Screened in Ha Noi
The first ever Japanese Animation Film Festival will be held in Ha Noi between January 12 – 16, 2011.
Sponsored by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs, the festival will include eight outstanding animated films from the past decade.
“This is the first such event that has been held in Ha Noi as part of this initiative, and it also marks the first time a film festival devoted entirely to Japanese animation has taken place in Ha Noi,” said Takeji Yoshikawa, director of the Japan Foundation Centre for Cultural Exchange.
In connection with these screenings, Mai Mai Miracle’s director Katabuchi Sunao, The Great Adventure of Hutch the Honeybee’s director Amino Tetsuro and other special guests including popular voice actress Mitsuki Saiga will attend and take part in cultural exchange events with those involved in the animated film industry in Viet Nam.
