Calling all animation fans, here’s your chance to see My Neighbour Totoro on the big screen – and a whole bunch of other Studio Ghibli titles while you’re at it.
Celebrate! Studio Ghibli at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image is bringing together a collection of 23 films from the renowned studio, giving audiences the chance to explore beautifully designed animated worlds and immerse themselves in imaginative storytelling.
ACMI’s recent mini animation festival Essential Anime Heroines was a celebration of the most beloved female characters from Japanese anime, but now it’s going full Ghibli for a month, and we couldn’t be happier.
