Miyazaki Film Festival
Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese film director, animator, manga artist and screenwriter.
While Miyazaki's films have long enjoyed both commercial and critical success in Japan, he remained largely unknown to the West until Miramax Films released PRINCESS MONONOKE. (Princess Mononoke was the highest-grossing film in Japan—until it was eclipsed by another 1997 film, Titanic—and the first animated film to win Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards.) Miyazaki followed with SPIRITED AWAY which also broke box-office records and won Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards in addition to being the first anime film to win an American Oscar.
Throughout the month of March and into April, we celebrate the singular storytelling and phantasmagoric vision of Hayao Miyazaki with restored 35mm prints of his most treasured films.
Parental discretion is advised. Not all films are suitable for young children. All films are in Japanese with English subtitles.
