Festival du Nouveau Cinema October 8-19

The Festival du Nouveau Cinema (October 8-19) will have a small but notable selection of East Asian films, some of which come from TIFF’s recent lineup. Update: I have seen the “The Tale Of Princess Kaguya” and I highly recommend it for animated fans and those who like Japanese folktales and traditional painting. Studio Ghibli does not disappoint with beautiful art direction and memorable characters.
