Teaming up with Fathom allows GKIDS to have a much wider release than the typical indie theatre circuit, giving more fans a chance to see them than ever before. Studio Ghibli Fest will run monthly starting with screenings of My Neighbour Totoro on June 25 and June 26 2017.
The full line up is:
- My Neighbour Totoro (June 25 and 26)
- Kiki's Delivery Service (July 23 and 24)
- Castle In The Sky (August 27 and 28)
- Nasuicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind (September 24 and 25)
- Spirited Away (October 29 and 30)
- Howl's Moving Castle (November 26 and 27)
Each screening will be accompanied by Studio Ghibli Minifest "an ongoing festival of award-winning short animated films from around the world, as part of the exclusive event experience."
Locations and tickets will be available from April 28. You can preregister at the website to get exclusive early access.
It has also been announced that GKIDS will team up with Fathom for their release of the French CGI film Mune: Guardian Of The Moon. The dates are to be confirmed but it is expected to be released before the end of the year.
