'Mirai' Returning to US Cinemas from February 18

Mamoru Hosoda's latest film Mirai has received many accolades, from the honor of a Cannes Festival screening to becoming the first anime to be nominated for a Golden Globe- not to mention the small matter of an Oscar nomination. Fresh from its crowning as Best Animated Feature (Independent) at this month's Annie Awards, GKIDS Films are bringing the film back to select cinemas across the United States from February 18.

Whether you were able to catch the film during its Fathom Events screening late last year, or if this will be your first time, this is a welcome opportunity to catch one of the best animated films of 2018 on the big screen. You can read our review of the film here, or listen to our podcast where we discussed the film here.



From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) and Japan’s Studio Chizu comes MIRAI, a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. 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.
