Konnichiwa / Hello,

Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival is the only festival in Wales to focus on Japanese Animation. We screen a diverse selection of films, from mainstream to independent shorts, which are rarely screened in the area. We currently tour the festival in Cardiff (at Chapter) and Aberystwyth (at the Arts Centre) in the UK. We showcase special guests from the Japanese animation industry, together with animation & character design via workshops, short films, calligraphy classes, and a marketplace selling a selection of Japanese paraphernalia.

We are a registered charity in England and Wales (Reg. No. 1187288) so we rely on charitable donations to pay for everything from the cost of securing film rights, to flights and hotel/food costs for guest speakers visiting from Japan. By pledging what you can, you can help us ensure that the festival can continue to grow and, more importantly, provide quality films and educational workshops for all our festival visitors to enjoy, and to provide a platform for fans of Japanese animation to come together.

* Please note that the benefits listed in each tier covering film tickets require at least two weeks notice of your choice of film. We cannot however guarantee a space if an event sells out in the meantime. All ticket benefits apply to all film events happening as part of the Kotatsu Festival, but excludes access to workshops and masterclasses.
