News & Announcements

Meetings 18th and 19th November

Hello all! Hope this finds you well. As you may already know, this week's meetings are on both the Friday (regular scheduled programming) and Saturday (for a super awesome film afternoon!) Worth noting for this week: 

Room Change

Oxford Anime Vision will not be in the normal room this Friday, as we couldn’t book it. Instead, we’ll be meeting in the FitzHugh Auditorium at the Cohen Quad. This is on Walton Street just to the north-west of the city centre, here: https://goo.gl/maps/N9Vpq7sgZY62. It’s a fairly obvious large building on the left side of Walton Street if you’re walking northwards. It’s only about five minutes’ walk from Exeter College where we normally meet.

Please note that the Cohen Quad’s main doors are locked by default. We will make sure we have people at the doors around 8 PM to let you in and show you the way to the auditorium, but it would be wise not to be late.

Film Afternoon: Saturday 18 Nov, 2–6 PM, Saskatchewan Room

We’ll be screening a couple of anime films this Saturday, from 2 PM to 6 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter. The films will be:

1. Angel’s Egg

Angel’s Egg is a startling piece about a girl travelling through a desolate and mysterious environment. It’s high on atmosphere and low on dialogue. It’s an hour long, and it was directed by Mamoru Oshii, who also directed (among other things) the 1995 Ghost in the Shell film and its sequel, Innocence, the first two Patlabor films, and The Sky Crawlers. Oshii collaborated on it with Yoshitaka Amano, an artist known for his work on various classic anime, but also on novels and computer games (you might’ve encountered his work if you’ve ever played a Final Fantasy game…).

2. Patema Inverted

Patema Inverted is a fun adventure/drama film with a sf element: it’s about two groups for whom gravity operates in opposite directions. Patema, a girl who has always lived underground, escapes to the surface, where she befriends Age, a boy who feels out of place in the dictatorial society in power above ground. Patema Inverted was directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, who also directed Time of Eve—so if you’ve been enjoying that in our weekly meetings, come see this! (But maybe don’t watch this if you suffer from really bad vertigo.)

We’ll start Angel’s Egg at about 2.30 PM and Patema Inverted at about 4 PM; do feel free to come and see just one of the two films if you’re only interested in one or if you’re very busy!

Anyone who wants to will be welcome to go for a meal afterwards: sign up on the Facebook post or email oxanimevision@gmail.com by Thursday evening to be included in the restaurant booking.

Hopefully see you there on Friday and Saturday!

Film Afternoon: Sat 18 Nov, 2–6 PM, Saskatchewan Room

We’ll be screening a couple of anime films on Saturday 18 November (the Saturday at the end of week 6), from 2 PM to 6 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter. The films will be:

Fireworks Screening: 15 November

The Odeon on George St is showing the new anime film Fireworks (or, as its full official title goes, Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?… don't look at me, I don't name these things!) on Wednesday 15 November (Wednesday of week 6), at 7 PM. The screening's Japanese audio with English subtitles. You can buy tickets here, if you’re interested.

Best wishes,

Daniel

Meeting, Room Change and Film Screenings!

Dear all,

Room Change: This Friday

Oxford Anime Vision will not be in the normal room this Friday, as we couldn’t book it. Instead, we’ll be meeting in the FitzHugh Auditorium at the Cohen Quad,. This is on Walton Street just to the north-west of the city centre, here: https://goo.gl/maps/N9Vpq7sgZY62. It’s a fairly obvious large building on the left side of Walton Street if you’re walking northwards. It’s only about five minutes’ walk from Exeter College where we normally meet.

Please note that the Cohen Quad’s main doors are locked by default. We will make sure we have people at the doors around 8 PM to let you in and show you the way to the auditorium, but it would be wise not to be late. This is the first time we’ve used this room, so it’s a bit of an experiment—we’ll see how it goes!

We will be back in the normal room at Exeter College next week (10 November), but we’ll probably be back at the Cohen Quad two more times later this term.

Film Afternoon: Saturday 18 November

We’ll be screening a couple of anime films on Saturday 18 November (the Saturday of week 6), roughly from 2 PM to 6 PM in the Saskatchewan Room at Exeter; if enough people are interested, we’ll go out for a meal afterwards. We haven’t picked the films yet, but you might want to mark the time in your diary!

Hope everyone's having a good week! 

Isabella
P.S. Sorry about the relative lateness of this week's email; genuinely couldn't be helped. Next week we should be back on schedule once again!
