Wales’ Premier Event for Japanese Animation

The Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival will hold its 10th anniversary celebration on October 24th and 25th with a line-up of screenings and events people will be able to participate in for free via the festival’s YouTube channel and through various Zoom sessions.

The festival will screen 40 films, including 30 works from students studying at 5 different Japanese universities, as well as 10 works from 5 award-winning animators, including Oscar nominated Koji Yamamura whose latest films, Dreams Into Drawing and Water Dreams, will be shown.

The festival has also collaborated with some of the animators to create Zoom workshops that will cover a range of activities such as one dedicated to the art of creating the Kotatsu Festival mascot design by animator/illustrator Chie Arai, a talk and demonstration given by veteran claymation animator Fusako Yusaki, and also a talk with animator/director Miho Yata and musician Takeshi Yoda.
