IFC centre to host Studio Ghibli retrospective
Studio Ghibli and distributor GKIDS will bring a 15-film retrospective to New York’s IFC Center beginning December 16th, reports Collider. Featuring new 35mm prints, and both subtitled and English-dubbed versions, the retrospective will run until January 12th. All fifteen Studio Ghibli feature films produced between 1984 and 2008 will be screened, including Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award winning Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Kiki’s Delivery Service. GKIDS, which recently entered into agreement with Studio Ghibli to handle North American theatrical distribution for their library of animated features, also plans limited releases of select Studio Ghibli titles, many of which have never been released theatrically in the US, beginning late 2012.
