Scotland Loves Animation, the organisers behind the UK's largest and longest-running anime film festival, are bringing their fan favourite celebration of Japanese anime to selected cinemas across the United Kingdom this year with events including the Sheffield Loves Anime film festival this weekend and next month's We Love Anime touring programme, allowing fans to discover the range of incredible stories that anime has to offer.
Find your inspiration amidst the glitz and glamour of tinseltown with Pompo the Cinephile, an earnest and unabashed love-letter to film that proved a massive hit with audiences at this year's Scotland Loves Anime film festival, or discover the magic power that fandom has to bring people together in a heartfelt story of three young women at different roadblocks in their lives with Looking for Magical Doremi.
Joining them in events across the country are the otherworldly romance Over the Sky, and the search for answers in life and death that is Summer Ghost, a remarkable short film debut from the acclaimed illustrator loundraw (Josee, The Tiger and the Fish).
The films will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles as part of Sheffield Loves Anime in the city's Showroom Cinema between Friday 19th November - Sunday 21st November. They will also be shown at selected Picturehouse and Showcase Cinemas as part of the We Love Anime touring programme between Saturday 4th December - Sunday 5th December.
