About Animation is Film

ANIMATION IS FILM is a major animation festival produced by GKIDS in collaboration with Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Variety, and ASIFA Hollywood.  The inaugural event took place October 20-22, 2017 at the historic Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood (TCL Chinese 6 Theater) and featured a highly selective showcase of the best animated films from around the world, plus red carpet, filmmaker Q&As, special events, receptions, short film programs, VR Lounge, and both juried and audience awards.

ANIMATION IS FILM fills a gap in the market by launching a world class animation festival in the US, with its home in the world capital of filmmaking. The Festival embraces the highest aspirations of animation as a cinematic art form on par with live action, and will be vocal advocate for filmmakers who push the boundaries of their work to the fullest range of expression that the medium is capable of.

 

Mirai synopsis

AIF 2018 opens with the latest from acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda – whose The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, Wolf Children and Boy and the Beast are also playing the festival. Mirai is a daringly original story of love passed down through generations and brings together two of Hosoda’s most resonant themes: the importance of family and the ability to pass through time. When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work and his father struggles to Run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai… until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future?

An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, and the epic capstone of director Mamoru Hosoda’s career, Mirai is a sumptuous, magical, and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.

 

I want to Eat Your Pancreas synopsis

Since Yoru Sumino posted his novel online in 2014, it has spawned a manga adaptation, a hit live action film, and now an animated feature. It’s no wonder, because this heart-melting story will surely move you to tears. This is the tale of a burgeoning teenage romance between two high school classmates on opposite ends of the popularity spectrum. The un-named protagonist is a socially awkward librarian who can’t hold eye contact. He finds the diary of a girl, Sakura, and discovers she only has a few months left to live. Despite her illness, Sakura has an optimistic disposition – she may be dying, but she is not throwing in the towel and wants to hit as many highs as possible in the time she has left. A cheerful dying girl teaching a mopey boy how to live may not be new (think Harold and Maude) but it is easy to buy into their blossoming love, and when things get messy you can’t help rooting for them. Ultimately the film tells a universal story about friendship, and treasuring each moment of the precious time we have together in this world.
