Studio Ghibli Honored With 2015 Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award

Studio Ghibli Honored With 2015 Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award

The Busan International Film Festival has chosen Studio Ghibli as the 2015 recipient of their Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award. The award is presented annually to an “Asian filmmaker that has significantly contributed to the development of the Asian film industry and culture.”
Studio Ghibli was founded 30 years ago by directors Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki, and it has a well-established reputation for its significant animated achievements with films like “Spirited Away,” which won an Academy Award, and “Grave of the Fireflies.” In celebration of Studio Ghibli’s award, the Busan International Film Festival will screen Miyazaki’s “My Neighbor Totoro” as part of their Open Cinema slate and Takahata’s “Only Yesterday” in the animation showcase.
Studio Ghibli’s most recent film, “When Marnie Was There,” opened earlier this year.
