The 5-year anniversary edition of Cinetree’s Forest Film Festival will take place in the Amsterdam Bostheater on August 22, 23 and 24. On August 24th we’ll broadcast the new Studio Ghibli movie The Boy and the Heron on the big screen in the forest!

Studio Ghibli is a genre in itself. They create animations that are particularly popular among arthouse visitors. Studio Ghibli won an Oscar for Best Animation this year with The Boy and the Heron.

In The Boy and the Heron, twelve-year-old Mahito finds it difficult to feel at home in a new city after the death of his mother. When a talking heron tells him that his mother is still alive, he sets out on an adventure to search for her in a magical world.

For the English spoken version, Robert Pattinson, Christian Bale and Florence Pugh, among others, provided the voice overs. In the Bostheater, however, we will broadcast the original Japanese version, which will transform august 24th into a real Studio Ghibli evening.
