Los Angeles Anime Film Festival (LA-AFF)
September 15 @ 8:00 am - September 17 @ 5:00 pm
Given the popularity of the yearly Anime Expo, it’s a little surprising L.A. doesn’t have a way to recognize the art of anime itself. With the debut of the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival (LA-AFF), that’s about to change. For three days, LA-AFF presents nothing but anime, from fan favorites to brand-new flicks. Organized by Rydgen Inc. and Azoland Pictures, the festival not only screens more than 20 anime films but also includes a roster of Q&As with filmmakers. Celebrate the 100th anniversary of anime in Japan with a weekend-long birthday party honoring the enduring art of Japanese animation. Regal L.A. LIVE, 1000 W. Olympic Blvd., downtown; Fri.-Sun., Sept. 15-17; $8-$30. La-aff.com.
