Australian cinemas are having a huge Studio Ghibli Festival!

Only a day after the Neon Genesis: Evangelion movies wrapped up in local cinemas, anime distributors Madman have announced yet another massive movie celebration. This time it’s for all things Studio Ghibli.

As picked up by Urbanlist and according to the official website, the event will run from August 24 to September 20 across cinemas in Australia and New Zealand. Over the course of the month-long festival, all 20 of Studio Ghibli’s feature films will be shown, as well as the TV movie Ocean Waves, documentaries and a few short films.


The range of participating cinemas on this is fairly huge, so you should get a reasonable chance to see at least one of the films. In Sydney alone, for instance, Event Cinemas, Dendy and Hoyts are all taking part, while ACMI is running screenings alongside regular cinemas in Victoria.

Some of the works haven’t been screened in Australia before, including Ghibilies Episode 2, a short film about ordinary people built off Studio Ghibli employees. There’s also early Miyazaki films like Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

You can view the full list of upcoming films and participating theatres here. Some films are being screened in English audio and others with subtitles, so you’ll want to check the individual listings before booking.
