The Studio Ghibli film festival that will be held in America stretches from June all the way to November this year.
As part of Studio Ghibli Fest, organizers Fathom Events and indie animation distributor GKIDS have selected six animated classics from Hayao Miyazaki’s extensive repertoire,which will be screened across theaters in America.
The festival opens with a two-night theatrical re-release of the beloved classic, My Neighbor Totoro. The other films will continue to be screened each subsequent month.
On the roster are fan favorites such as Spirited Away and Kiki’s Delivery Service. In addition to the Studio Ghibli Fest, Hayao Miyazaki is hard at work on his first feature since the release of The Wind Rises, and his first CGI short film, Boro the Caterpillar, is expected to make its debut at the Studio Ghibli museum in Japan.
“We are extremely proud to be partnering again with GKIDS to bring these beloved animated films to the big screen, including some of Hayao Miyazaki’s most iconic works,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said in an interview with IndieWire.
