MESSAGE FROM THE FESTIVAL DIRECTOR

It’s pretty hard to believe that Scotland Loves Anime 2014 will be the festival’s 5th year, but here we are. And it’s going to be a big one.

We’re covering 3 themes this year: science fiction, video games and a focus on the world famous Studio Bones.

Speaking of Studio Bones, we’ve got an incredible guest at the Edinburgh weekend: Masahiko Minami, president of Bones. Glasgow will also be welcoming a special guest, Giovanni’s Island director Mizuho Nishikubo.

If you’ve been to Scotland Loves Anime before you’ll have come to expect the In Competition strand, where some of the hottest new anime films in the festival go up against our judging panel. We’ve got four great films battling for the top spot this year – more on those below.

Animation students, graduates and enthusiasts will have the rare opportunity to gather insight and advice from Masahiko Minami and a panel of UK anime industry experts at our annual education day. Find out all about it here.

So come along and help us celebrate our 5th year! Whether you’ve been to previous editions of the festival or if this is your first time, there’s something for you at Scotland Loves Anime 2014.

See you there!

Andrew Partridge,
Festival Director
