Animation exhibition is moving
AN EXHIBITION of art from some of the great names in anime is on show at the Robina Community Centre as part of the Gold Coast Film Festival Cool Japan program.
Featuring work from artists Makoto Shinkai, Jun Awazu, Ryoichi Mori and Soubi Yamamoto, the exhibit presents the awe-inspiring nature of this uniquely Japanese animation in a way that will leave fans and newcomers alike breathless.
Cool Japan Gold Coast is a screen culture program designed to explore and experience Japan's pop culture industries such as anime, movies, art and design.
It is supported by cultural partnerships with the Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast, the Japanese Society of the Gold Coast, the Consulate General of Japan and is the brainchild of GCFF Festival Director Casey Marshall Siemer, Japanese Society President Nao Hirano and GCCC Councillor Jan Grew.
"This is the second year we have incorporated special anime events into the festival, with the chance for fans to meet with our special guests from Japan and learn how to be an anime artist and film maker.
"We look forward to continuing this program and growing the anime component of the festival," said Cr Jan Grew.
The Gold Coast Film Festival is presented by Australia Fair Shopping Centre and begins today until November 27 at Birch Carroll and Coyle Cinemas at Australia Fair Shopping Centre in Southport.
The full program of films and events is available to view at www.gcfilmfestival.com.
