The Carpenter Center will soon be hosting their 1st Annual Japanese Animation Festival. The World Premiere of Peter Chung's "Alexander the Great" will be sharing the festival spotlight with Miyazaki's classic "The Castle of Cagliostro" and Takahata's powerful "Grave of the Fireflies". The festival will be held April 21-22. Festival artistic director Carl Macek (of Streamline Pictures) has put together a kind of primer package complete with harder core features and a world premiere on Friday night, and a Saturday lineup which begins the some of anime's original "kiddie fare" and finishes with the one-two punch of the thought-provoking and visceral Grave of the Fireflies followed by the midnight magic of Petshop of Horrors. In between the main screenings in the Carpenter Center's 1000+ hall, video monitors in the lobby will screen various anime series. There will also be several vendors selling anime-related merchandise, along with plenty of free catalogues and special door prizes.

The Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center is located at 6200 Atherton Street, on the Northeast corner of the California State University, Long Beach campus.
