J-Anime Meeting

On November 27—28, J-Anime Meeting, an anime culture festival, will be held.

J-Anime Meeting is a new online festival to unite Russian and Japanese students. The festival aims to eliminate stereotypes about Japanese animation.

The J-Anime Meeting program will feature two full-length anime films, a talk show with invited experts in the anime industry, workshops on creating subtitles, seminars, lectures by animators, and presentations about special aspects of anime by students from Russia and Japan.

Akira, a cyberpunk masterpiece that has been newly dubbed in Russian, and I Want to Eat Your Pancreas, a subsidized full-length anime that will open eyes to how wonderful life is, will be shown officially in Russia for the first time.

J-Anime Meeting is an official event within the Year of Cross-Regional and Sister-Cities Exchanges between Russia and Japan. The festival will be held in cooperation with The Union of Cinematographers of the Russian Federation and supported by MCU, Kobe City University of Foreign Studies, and The Istari Comics Publisher.
