Okko's Inn | 若おかみは小学生!

The latest feature from famed anime studio Madhouse and director Kitaro Kosaka, who was a key animator on numerous classic films at the venerable Studio Ghibli, seamlessly blends immersive, idyllic landscapes with the storybook charm of Okko’s beloved ghosts. Okko’s Inn delivers a rare ghost story that –despite several floating characters – is firmly grounded in the trials and joys of humanity.

Mirai | 未来のミライ

Mirai has achieved a historic first time ever for a non-Studio Ghibli anime to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, and the epic capstone of director Mamoru Hosoda’s career, Mirai is a sumptuous, magical, and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.

Shoplifters | 万引き家族

The film premiered in 2018 at the Cannes Film Festival, where it went on to win the Palme d'Or. Shoplifters was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
