Near where I used to live there is a small theatre that re-shows some older anime films I think they are all Ghibli ones but it's better than nothing.

The JFFI is back & seems have some decent films. The anime includes: The Wind Rises, Patema Inverted, HAL, The Garden of Words, Ghost in the Shell ARISE Parts 1 & 2.

I'm only interested in The Wind Rises, Patema Inverted to be honest. Maybe the new GitS.

Other than the anime the Japanese remake of Unforgiven and Takashi Miike's Lesson of Evil looks interesting.

I'm hoping to see everything you've listed, Nabeshin. In particular, the Garden of Words looks intriguing!

Completely forgot about MCM Dublin. It's seems to be falling on some the same days as the JFFI and there's not really much info on what's on. What are the various ones in the UK like?

Everything? That's dedication! I'm thinking of headin' to the Friday & Saturday evening runs in the Light House. Miike's Ace Attorney was the highlight for me last year so I'll have to see another one of his.

Smelly, crowded, full of half naked teenagers. :D

MCM are usually pretty late to post the confirmed guests.

Ha. Looking back over the forum I'm getting the impression from you & Project, that it seems not the most well run of events.

Honestly between a wedding I'm going to the end of this week, Electric Picnic tickets, the JFFI & various other gigs (Girls Names are playing Whelan's on April 4th) I don't think I've the money for this. :(

The London one struggles with its popularity. It is so damn busy.

Well I went to some of the JFFI screenings. I ended up seeing The Wind Rises, Patema Inverted Lesson of Evil & the two GitS OVAs.

The Wind Rises and Patema Inverted were two fine films.While both were pretty to look at (especially the earthquake scene in the former), I just wasn't pushed with either film.

I really disliked Ghost in the Shell ARISE 1 & 2, though the main reason for that might be that I adore Stand Alone Complex & OVA isn't a patch on the series. I find it rather odd to be honest, it's neither as well written as series nor as beautiful to watch as either of the films. I just think that if Kenji Kamiyama had a hand in the production it would have turned out better. One thing I did like about the OVAs was the score by Cornelius. But that's hardly a surprise as I was a fan of his work already.

I also caught the non-anime Lesson of Evil by Takashi Miike, which was an absolute hoot. If you like black comedies or gore you should like this. It kind of drags somewhat in the middle but one it reaches the high school culture festival part of the film really comes into its own.

Along with the JFFI I popped into the RDS for the MCM. I'm just guessing but I'd say arriving late enough in the day (just before 5ish) I mostly missed the MCM experience as it was neither smelly nor over crowded & there was only some half naked teenagers. Got Perfect Blue on bluray (I already own it on DVD but I love that film & had to get the bluray), along a few DC back issues and the final Locke & Key hardback that I've been meaning to get for ages. So, pretty good weekend all in all apart for the flu I picked up afterwards.
