Annual General Meeting, followed by Screening on Saturday 20th July 2019

Annual General Meeting before JAFWA Screening

This it!
After mentioning it for the last couple of months, it is finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 20th of July 2019 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2019 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held.

We request that all current members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard!

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to jafwa.anime@gmail.com. Preferably sufficiently in advance so that we can deal with them.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

The JAFWA committee has a few constitutional amendments to make that requires the approval and voting by the JAFWA membership.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 20th, 2019.

Thank you in advance for all attending the AGM, and sticking around for the election during the Dinner Break.
Not that we think we need to bribe you to attend this week, or any such thing, this will be more of a reward. This week we will have two preview items, one before the Dinner Break, one after the Late Break. Due to a mistake, at the last JAFWA session I suggested that we would have the first episode of “Dr Stone”. However, we now know that it is a double-length episode so we can’t fit it in next week, it will have to be August. Hopefully our replacement preview item will be acceptable.

Helpful Fox Senko-san Cop Craft

SBS World Movies continues it Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July, though it is dubbed into English. However, on the night of Wednesday 17th July, the next channel over SBS Viceland is showing the live action version of “Attack on Titan”.

What is your favourite episode of “Mobile Police Patlabor”? Saturday August 10th has been declared Patlabor Day, so we should commemerate. But we only have room in the JAFWA program for a single episode. Which one shall it be?

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 13th, 2019.

Welcome back to JAFWA, for our first screening in July. We will ease you back in, with our usual program, with no significant surprises, as Previews and other goodness are later this month. Surely SBS World Movies Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July has kept you going, even if it was dubbed into English.

This is the last week to nominate yourself for the JAFWA elections, for next week is the JAFWA AGM and committee elections!

Also, please raise any issues you think need to be discussed at the AGM via the suggestions sheets, and/or e-mail so that the JAFWA committee can add and address the issue properly on the AGM agenda.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday June 29th, 2019.

Remember to leave Supanova 2019 – Perth convention slightly early this Saturday to attend JAFWA.

With the Winter Solstice past, and the length of days now waxing, perhaps we can convince ourselves to take psychological relief that the end of winter may be in sight. Though to strengthen that placebo cure for the Winter Blues, we have a short movie this week at JAFWA, on the importance of saying goodbye properly.
This will also be our end of month screening, which means we will have a monthly survey to see what has been approved by our dear JAFWAites, along with our monthly Member’s Prize draw.

Screening on Saturday 22nd June 2019

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday June 22nd, 2019.

We thank Madman for providing those movie cels last week for door prizes. And we realise how “useful” buying extra Door Prize tickets can be. Did you watch Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? The Movie: Arrow of the Orion at the cinemas?

A few weeks back a silly little 12 minute show was screened before the main screening as part of the sound and vision check. Several of the attendees who arrived early asked about it, so as this week’s preview episode we will screen the two of the 12-minute episodes of “Isekai Quartet”. It just goes to show how many Isekai (aka “another world”) gernre anime is being produced these days, also it is kind of scary that JAFWA has screened all 4 original titles that this show is a chibi/super-deformed parody of, among all the other Isekai shows we have shown (I am personally hanging out for a second season of “Isekai Shokudou” aka “Restaurant from Another World”).
Hope you enjoy what we have done with the program tonight.

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.
