We are glad to announce this year’s main event.
A screening of the wonderful stop motion animation ‘Komaneko’ directed by Tsuneo Goda, followed by a live Q&A session with the director and Hirokazu Minegishi, stop-motion animator via Skype from Japan.
Komaneko is a stop-motion series of shorts featuring a curious cat, his friends and their adventures. Beautifully animated, with lovable characters, exquisite set pieces and enchanting story lines guaranteed to please all ages.
Here is a special message from director Tsuneo Goda.
“The Kotatsu Film Festival is such a lovely name for this festival of animation. Thank you once again for inviting me to participate in the festival. Komaneko is presented using `cat language’. Some parts are also shown in `dog language’. The film should therefore be enjoyed by Japanese and British people, and indeed by people the world over, whatever their language. I would be thrilled and delighted to know that you enjoyed my film.“Tsuneo Goda
