Studio Ghibli Film Festival at Minneapolis Lagoon Cinema


The Studio Ghibli Film Festival arrives at the Minneapolis Lagoon Cinema this Friday for a two-week run.  A total of 14 films will be screened, in Japanese and English languages, all from newly-struck 35mm film prints.  This is going to be sensational, and for every true fan, the chance of a lifetime.

The Ghibli Blog - Marcee and I - will be attending the festival as much as possible.  We won't be seeing all of the films, but we'll check in whenever we can.  The fine folks at the Lagoon Cinema were kind enough to give us some free passes, and we're hoping to bring our families along for the ride.  We'll also continue to cover the festival during its two-week run, with related news items and reviews/essays.

Here's the complete schedule for the Ghibli Film Retrospective.  We'll be waiting for you!

I heard about this on MPR and then found your blog. I can't believe they are actually showing the original Japanese versions. I'll be there on Sunday for a 6 hour marathon!

Do you know which version of My Neighbor Totoro they will be showing?
