Tsutomu Mizushima's xxxHOLiC - A Midsummer Night's Dream selected for Anima 2007

February 16, 2007

xxxHOLiC - A Midsummer Night's Dream (2005), based on CLAMP original comic book and directed by Tsutomu Mizushima, is one of the eleven feature films in the Official Selection of the prestigious Belgian animation film festival Anima 2007. The festival, that this year celebrates its 26th edition, will be held from February 16 to 25, 2007 in Brussels.

Started in 1982 by Philippe Moins as a non-competitive convention, the event proved sufficiently important for the organizing association (The Parascholastic Confederation for Official Education) to decide to make it an annual event. Since then the festival has been held every year. The name changed from Conference to Animation Week (from 1984 to 1988). Since 1989 it has been organized by Folioscope, a nonprofit organization for which the festival is its principal activity, and from 2002, it adopted its current name, Anima. The festival now attracts an average of 30,000 participants but has kept one essential characteristic from its origins: it appeals above all to the public, before being a rendezvous for professionals.

In the past years, the festival welcomed outstanding creators such as John Lasseter, Isao Takahata, Tim Burton and the staff from Aardman Studios, screening works by Paul Grimault and Guido Manuli, and from Toy Story to Howl's Moving Castle.
