LIMITED SPOTS in the beautiful and intimate Fox Theatre HISTORY: In April 2017, Culture Toronto held it's first Studio Ghibli Double Feature because we love anime, and Hayao Miyazaki does some of the best anime movies ever. Since the date was April 1st, April Fool’s Day, we call these events Foolish for Ghibli! As we branch out using other anime, we'll never forget the standard we started with - now these are Foolish for Ghibli PLUS events! This FFG+ event occurring on February 16th, during Valentine’s Day weekend, has a lot of magic in store. We’re showing great works by both Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki and the acclaimed Mamoru Hosoda - Spirited Away and Wolf Children. Both of these movies are utterly magical, with love and important decisions between very different worlds to make for main characters - you’ll be wondering if you would make similar decisions yourself. It is going to be an utter joy to watch these movies with great stories with equally compelling animation together on the big screen! Join us! This isn’t our first Miyazaki and Hosoda mashup but it is one of our grandest. DISCLAIMER: tissues will not be provided

    What we're about

    Join Culture Toronto in the best Japanese anime celebrations in Toronto!

    Like watching anime with hundreds of people? Interested in imported Japanese merchandise? Do you support handmade artist goods?

    This meetup will serve as a hub for getting us all into a theatre to watch great anime together. We will discuss potential movies to watch next, what we thought of previous events and how we can improve/what additions you want to see.

    Our events go beyond just anime screenings though; we create large celebrations around these movies by bringing in local talent performances, social media influencers in the anime and cosplay scene, cosplay contests, a place to purchase a wide array of imported merchandise from Japan as well as local art and handmade goods made by this strong community. We also partnered with authentic Japanese cheesecake maker HCafe (formerly Uncle Tetsu) to give our guests Japanese cheesecake!

    Our flagship event is the Foolish For Ghibli+ Double Feature.
