Ghiblites? Ghiblians? Either way, there'll be plenty of fans lining up at Celebrate Studio Ghibli, the first time the complete 22-film Studio Ghibli catalogue has screened in New Zealand and Australian cinemas.
From the wildly imaginative fantasy of HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE and the Oscar�-winning SPIRITED AWAY, to the high adventure of PORCO ROSSO and the raw emotion of WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE, the films of Studio Ghibli are renowned for their beautifully realised worlds and uniquely imaginative storytelling.
The line-up includes Hayao Miyazaki's iconic MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, SPIRITED AWAY and PRINCESS MONONOKE, alongside other classics such as POM POKO, MY NEIGHBORS THE YAMADAS and OCEAN WAVES - the latter of which has never screened in cinemas before in either country.
All feature-length films will be screening in original Japanese language with English subtitles and English dub where available, with the exception of OCEAN WAVES, THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS and ISAO TAKAHATA AND HIS TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA - which will each screen in Japanese with English subtitles. Check your nearest participating cinema for individual sessions and preferred language listings.
Tickets are now on sale from participating cinemas, and we have 7 double passes to give away (to any session except opening night).
