your name japanese film festival debut

#Competition: Win tickets to screening of Your Name at Light House Cinema tomorrow

With thanks to Access Cinema we a pair of tickets to give away to a screening of the excellent Japanese animated film Your Name at Light House Cinema tomorrow (December 3rd) at 3:20pm.

Mitsuha and Taki are total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he’s never visited. What does their newfound connection mean? And how will it bring them together?

Existing fans of Makoto Shinkai’s work are excited about Your Name, and its universal appeal is going to win him a whole new audience in the process. Your Name has been a runaway success in Japan, where it has held the top spot at the box office for twelve consecutive weeks since opening domestically on August 26th.

The film is also currently the fourth highest-grossing anime film of all time in Japan, with only the three Studio Ghibli films Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke earning more money.
