Madman Entertainment presents 'REEL Anime 2012' Australia-wide!

Slated to set place between September 13th - 26h 2012, the anime film festival currently in it's third year running, Madman Entertainment is delighted to reveal the details of the event;

"With just over a month until the REEL ANIME festival begins, Madman is proud to announce supporting cinema locations and the launch of the official website.

Showcasing four of the freshest anime feature films this side of Japan, REEL ANIME will screen from September 13 – 26 at the following locations around the country: Dendy Newtown (Sydney), Cinema Nova (Melbourne), Dendy Portside (Brisbane), Dendy Canberra (Canberra), Luna Leederville (Perth), Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas (Adelaide), State Cinema (Hobart), Avoca Beach Picture Theatre (Avoca Beach)."



The brand new anime films that's recently been released in Japan will be screening and includes; Studio Ghibli’s From Up On Poppy Hill, Berserk Movie 1: The Egg of the King, Wolf Children and Makoto Shinkai’s Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below.


FROM UP ON POPPY HILL
Director – Goro Miyazaki

Set in Yokohama, From Up On Poppy Hill is a high school love story that take place in the year before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics. As the country begins to pick itself up from the devastation of the Second World War, the new generation struggles to move towards a prosperous future whilst trying not to lose the essence of their past. The film's rich and vibrant animation captures the entrancing beauty of Yokohama's harbour and lush surrounding hillsides and, with a soundtrack that draws inspiration from the finest music of the time, perfectly captures the thrills of young romance and the hope of a new dawn.


WOLF CHILDREN
Director – Mamoru Hosada

When Hana falls in love, it feels like a fairy tale. She starts a family and produces two beautiful children – Yuki (Snow), a girl, and Ame (Rain), a boy. But the family harbours a secret – their father is a 'Wolf-Man', half human and half wolf, and has passed his affliction on to his children. The family try to reside discreetly in a quiet corner of the city, but their joyful life is shattered when their father passes away. To live peacefully, Hana must make the difficult decision to move Yuki and Ame to a small town and surround them with nature.


BERSERK - THE EGG OF THE KING
Director - Toshiyuki Kubooka

An epic action-adventure tale set against a dark, European-inspired medieval fantasy world, Berserk - The Egg of the King follows the story of Guts, a lone mercenary renowned for his ferocity and unmatched in a fight especially when armed with his imposing sword, a towering blade as tall as he. His destiny is to eventually become 'The Black Swordsman' and he will face untold horrors in battle.

In this first film from The Golden Age Arc trilogy, Guts' actions in combat capture the attention of Griffith, charismatic leader of the Band of the Hawk mercenaries. Griffith soon moves to recruit Guts into their ranks despite protest from second in command, Casca, whose skill and fiery temper is matched only by loyalty to her comrades. Yet despite a slew of victories and successes, Guts begins to question Griffith's true purpose, whose ambition may lead them all to a horrible fate.

Based on Kentaro Miura's bestselling manga series which has sold over 30 million copies worldwide Berserk: The Golden Age Arc trilogy takes the franchise into a bold and exciting new direction. The award winning Studio 4C (Mind Game, Spriggan) bring Berserk to the screen with cutting-edge animation, intricately detailed swordplay and a gripping storyline.


CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES
Director – Makoto Shinkai

Having lived a lonely life ever since her father's passing, Asuna spends her days listening to the otherworldly sounds of a crystal radio, left to her as a memento. Exploring the mountains near her home, Asuna is attacked by a strange beast. A mysterious stranger steps in to save her life, however their acquaintance is tragically cut short when the boy is killed. But when Asuna discovers a gateway to another world, she is overjoyed at the prospect of seeing him again. Alongside a band of friends who hold feelings of hope for their lost ones, Asuna undertakes a journey into a land of legends.
