YULE LOVE IT! RICHARDCROUSE.CA’S CHRISTMAS GIFT LIST! DAY TWO!
Why not celebrate the big day a few days early with the gift of tickets to a unique and one time only event featuring the films of Studio Ghibli AND commentary from the one and only Guillermo Del Toro!
Here’s some info from TIFF:
Following its spectacularly popular run in the spring of 2012, Spirited Away: The Films of Studio Ghibli returns from December 13, 2013 to January 3, 2014 to delight new and familiar audiences. This dazzling 18-film showcase, including a blend of new 35mm prints and digital presentations in both subtitled and dubbed versions, pays homage to the legendary animation studio whose trademark visual style, deeply felt humanism and powerful storytelling has made them “the Disney of Japan.” TIFF is honoured to finally feature the rarely-screened masterpiece Grave of the Fireflies (1988), one of Ghibli’s supreme accomplishments and regarded by many as the greatest animated film of all time. Other highlights include beloved classics such as My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Princess Mononoke (1997) and Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989); the rarely seen titles Only Yesterday (1991) and The Ocean Waves (1993); and Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award®–winning Spirited Away (2001). To kick off the series, celebrated director Guillermo del Toro leads a Master Class session on December 12 with an extended introduction and post-screening discussion of Castle in the Sky (1986). The Master Class is currently off sale, however a limited number of tickets may be available to the rush line 10 minutes before the start of the screening on a first come first served basis.
