Boston Science Fiction Film Festival does Anime After Dark

THE SKINNY: The Boston Science Fiction Film Festival will be paying a tribute to the world of anime with a twelve hour film festival event. Anime After Dark will take place at Boston's Somerville Theatre on October 18, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM.

In addition to films by masters of the genre like Studio Ghibli, Satoshi Kon, Leiji Matsumoto, and Kenji Kamiyama, there will be a screening of the upcoming 20th anniversary pay-per-view release of GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES.

Other notable films in the lineup include 2008 Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year winner TEKKON KINKREET, MILLENNIUM ACTRESS, GHOST IN THE SHELL: SOLID STATE SOCIETY, and PROJECT A-KO.

For more information, including a full schedule, visit the official website at


Okay, I'm not sure I'm up for an all-night animefest but then I've never actually been to a science fiction film festival. I've been to an anime convention here in Seattle (2007 SakuraCon). And I've been to Dragon*Con.

Maybe the next time I'm near an SF Film Festival I'll check it out.

You can find out more about the convention at the Boston SciFi Con site.

If anyone has attended one of these film festivals, please let me know how it compares to a regular SF con.
