Scotland Loves Anime 2017 Festival Line-Up Revealed

For 8 years now Scotland Loves Anime has been the UK's premiere film festival dedicated to Japanese animation. Run by Scotland Loves Animation, a charity dedicated to promoting animation as art, and directed by UK industry veteran Andrew Partridge, it attracts fans from all over the country. Starting in Edinburgh and Glasgow, it has since expanded to feature screenings in Dundee, Aberdeen, and Dumfries.

The line-up has now been revealed for both the Edinburgh and Glasgow legs of the festival. As ever, it will feature a mix of new and classic films, and will give fans another chance to catch several of the biggest recent anime releases on the big screen.

This year's highlights include screenings of both of Masaaki Yuasa's 2017 films Lu Over The Wall and Night Is Short, Walk On Girl, plus premieres of the live-action Tokyo Ghoul adaptation and Fireworks.

Classic screenings include Tokyo Godfathers, Venus Wars and Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis and recent hits include a chance to see Your Name and A Silent Voice (which will feature the world premiere of the new English dub).

Further screenings and guests will be announced at a later date. Tickets are available via the festival website.
