The UK’s top film festival for Japanese animation is set to make its return to Scotland.
Scotland Loves Animation takes places this October across the country, offering the first (and often the only) chance to see some of the best anime films on the big screen.
The annual film festival has built up a firm reputation over the last six years and the 2015 offering looks set to impress with the biggest lineup yet.
Sixteen of the top anime films from 2014/15 will hit screens in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen including five EU premieres, nine UK premieres and two Scottish premieres.
From the multi-million dollar box office hit Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ to the Annency award-winning Miss Hokusai, audiences will be treated to rare opportunities to meet directors and see hotly debated action films such as Attack on Titan.
Empire of Corpses will also be shown, just one week after it comes out in Japan, so audiences will be among the first in the world to see it.
An education day will also take place, fostering links between students and the animation industry.
The festival will be at the Glasgow Film Theatre in Glasgow from October 9, the Filmhouse in Edinburgh from October 12, and – for the first time – in Aberdeen from October 23.
