Anime Evolution @ Vancouver International Film Festival 2014

I am happy to announce our second year of being a Community Outreach supporter for the upcoming Vancouver International Film Festival, which starts from September 25th until October 10th, 2014.  VIFF will be showing their screenings at various locations including The Center in Vancouver for the Performing Arts, Rio Theatre, The Cinematheque, Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas, Vancouver Playhouse, SFU’s Gordcorp Center for the Arts, and Vancity Theatre, the home of the Vancouver International Film Center.

Founded in 1982, VIFF is one of the five largest film festivals in North America. VIFF screens the largest selection of East Asian films outside of that region and is one of the biggest showcases of Canadian film in the world. They also have a large, varied and important nonfiction program component. “VIFF is very much a festival designed for the benefit of people who love films and people who make them,” said one critic.

In further to that, the Vancouver Anime Convention Society have agreed to be co-presenting the film “The Tale of The Princess Kaguya”. Discovered inside a luminous stalk of bamboo, a magical newborn lights up the life of a childless woodcutter and his wife—even if they’re perplexed by the uncanny speed with which she crawls, walks, talks and transforms into a charming young lady. Kaguya captivates everyone she meets and bestows such bounty on the family that the woodcutter moves them to a city mansion, where she is courted by the most eligible bachelors far and wide. However, the role of “princess” is not to her liking. A wild child at heart, she yearns for the countryside and the carefree life she once knew…

Studio Ghibli’s other anime master Takahata Isao (Pom Poko) bows out with a tender, joyful and exquisitely crafted folk tale for all ages. His serene, hand-drawn impressionism is the perfect medium for an enchanting story that dates back to the 10th century. The synergy of colour, line, movement and simple human observation ensures that this will stand as one Studio Ghibli’s very finest achievements, a film that other animators will admire and dream of emulating—and, maybe in our sleep, the rest of us will too.

You can enter in a contest to win one of the possible 5 pairs of tickets to seeing this film on September 27th at 11:30am in the Center in Vancouver of the Performing Arts.  For more information or to participate in the contest, please like and check us out on our Facebook page.  Just keep in mind that you may require to purchase a $2 membership fee and that can be purchased at the entrance.  If you wanted to read up the cast, see the trailer, or even purchase tickets, please click here.
