Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival

Film Hub Wales Member

The Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival was created by Eiko Meredith. Launched in November 2010 at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, UK, the festival screens the best in Japanese animation and culture to a wide audience.

A ‘Kotatsu‘ is a table unique to Japan, which is draped in a blanket, futon or quilt, and which has a heater underneath. It’s ideal to keep your feet and legs warm while you are working away on the cold winter nights. So, in the words of the Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival, come on in, pull the blanket around you and enjoy some of the finest Japanese animation available.
