BFI SOUTHBANK CINEMA to Run Anime Programming Through April and May

The British Film Institute (BFI) is a charitable organization in the UK, focused on film-making and television promotion and preservation. The organization maintains a library of over 11,000 titles of various cultural and historical significance. They also run the BFI Southbank cinema, which holds four screens for curated programming throughout the week. This April and May, the BFI aims to show the British public that anime can be much more than “Post-apocalyptic worlds, fetishized characters and ultraviolence…”, by promoting a special block of programming spanning the history of the genre, from it’s origination to some of the latest international hit films, and truly represents a wide variety of films that can appeal to fans of more than just action!
