Anime Film Festival Tokyo 2018 Announces Its Screening Lineup

The event period is extended to 18 days from last year's 3 days

The Executive Committee of Anime Film Festival Tokyo announced that this year's event is scheduled to be held in Shinjuku, Tokyo, from October 6 to 22, with a list of its first screening lineup. More titles will be added at a later date. The organization was established last year as part of The Association of Japanese Animations' Anime Next 100 project to celebrate the 100-year history of Japanese animation since 1917.

 

Last year's first event was held in the same area on October 13, 14 and 15, 2017 and attracted about 100,000 visitors. Thanks to its huge success, the second event's period is extended to 18 days from three days. In addition to screenings of the latest and classic anime, the event also includes anime song live concerts, collaboration cafes, stamp rally, and original merchandise shops. Advance entries for the tickets will be accepted on the festival's official website from August 11 (regular: 3,000 yen/all night: 4,500 yen).
