Short post here, no surprises to the wise and wily. Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea will be shown at the Venice Film Festival this September, and it will be in competition. Hayao Miyazaki will appear once again to standing ovations, tears and cheers. As I've said, no surprises; Ghibli works the same dependable schedule year after year. These events should already be printed onto the annual Ghibli calendars.
