IMAF 2005 LINES UP TOP SPEAKERS AND NEW ANIME

The organisers of IMAF 2005, the International Manga and Anime Festival at London’s County Hall on the South Bank from October 21st – 25th, have just released some exciting new details of the Festival programme.

Junko Mizuno, one of Japan’s leading Manga artists whose work is seen on everything from T-shirts to nightclub décor will be speaking* at an IMAF workshop in the Debating Chamber. Junko has an impressive international following and is perhaps best known for her work in PULP and her full-length Manga version of Cinderella.

Paul Gravett, the UK’s greatest expert, journalist, curator, lecturer and broadcaster on comic art, and author of the seminal work ‘Manga: Sixty Years of Japanese Comics’ is a guest speaker at the Festival and he’ll be hosting a range of seminars*.

On-screen in the Debating Chamber, Streetfighter - Alpha Generation – will be enjoying its Europe Premiere at a special evening screening*. Tickets are £5.00 each or £4.00 for students and concessions. There are special screenings of Millennium Actress, Mobile Suit Gundam and Spriggan*, and the Debating Chamber will also be showing almost continuous child-friendly free film screenings during the day.

The pioneering Sweatdrop studio team is participating at IMAF 2005, running drawing workshops through the Festival to help budding Manga artists perfect their skills. The workshops will be held in the impressive Atrium at County Hall.

There are some outstanding trade stands with many big names in Manga and Anime attending, including ADV Films, Neo Magazine, J-Pop, Cartoon Passion, Japan Journeys, Blackwells Bookshops and Letraset.

The Eyeko cosmetics house will be there with their new japanime-inspired makeup range, as well as Garnier with its Manga haircare range.

If you want to know what you would look like with a completely different haircut and bold new make-up, Manga-style, you can pop into the Festival photo-booth, choose your look, and record it on camera.

The IMAF Exhibition is going to be even bigger and better than expected, and visitors will be able to see some fabulous entries to the IMAF competition including artwork from artists all over the world.

There will be delicious food at the Festival Café, including Japanese speciality Sushi and Bento boxes.

If you want to arrive at the Festival looking the full part (cosplayers excepted), IMAF are offering personalised top quality Festival hoodies at £25.00 for advance sale on their website at www.imaf.co.uk, but you’ll need to order these quickly if you want them to arrive in time.

*Please note that dates and times of these events are to be confirmed.
