We've got the details from the Sci-Fi-London regarding their anime all-nighter. The line up looks to be the best yet. The anime all nighter is set to run on Saturday 5th May from 11pm. The line up is as follows:
Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society
Le Chevalier D'Eon
Highlander: Search for vengence
Full Metal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa
We're excited to see the new follow up to Ghost In the Shell: Stand alone complex - Solid State Society, and it's worth going for that alone. However Paprika by Satoshi Kon (the director behind Tokyo Godfathers, Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress and Paranoia Agent) is another must see title. We're really impressed that they'll be showing them both on the same screening. The other titles are worth watching too. We suggest you make it a weekend of anime, go along to the anime all nighter, and then go to the London Anime Club the following day.
We also advise you book soon to avoid disappointment they sold out within 10 days last year.
Friday 4th May 2007, will show the UK Premiere of Ghost In the Shell: Solid State Society.
Press release as follows:
London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film
The UK's premier international festival dedicated to science fiction and fantastic film.
SCI-FI-LONDON 6: 2-6 May 2007, Apollo West End, Lower Regent Street, London SW1
It's that time of the year again and SCI-FI-LONDON has just announced its programme for this year's Festival, which runs from May 2-6 at the Apollo West End, Lower Regent Street, London SW1. As usual it has an eclectic mix of movies and events including four world premieres. But for the manga/anime folk the big one is the anime all-nighter and it won't disappoint. It's Production I.G's 20th anniversary and the programme recognises their achievement. This year's films are:
GHOST IN THE SHELL: Solid State Society
LE CHEVALIER D'EON
HIGHLANDER: Search for vengence
FULL METAL ALCHEMIST: Conqueror of Shamballa
Tickets are £24, with allocated seating. The price includes a goody bag, Red Bull, Purbeck Ice Cream, all the tea and coffee you can drink and prizes. A great time is guaranteed (although that's not a money-back guarantee) and even if you don't enjoy it, remember it is still cheaper than a hotel for the night! If you want to get tickets don't procrastinate as it sells out really quickly.
Full details of the Festival and how to get tickets are available from www.sci-fi-london.com.
