Screening on Saturday 27th July 2019


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 27th, 2019.

Thank you for all attending the AGM, and sticking around for the non-election during the Dinner Break. We needed more people to nominate.
We are still so saddened by the arson attack on the Kyoto Animation studio last week. This is the sort of thing that causes us to change the JAFWA program at the last moment, so I hope nobody minded us replacing the early evening preview slot with “Baja no Studio”.

Baja no Studio / Kyoto Animation arson Go Fund me

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.

SBS World Movies continues it Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July, though it is dubbed into English.

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?
