CONTEST: Katsuhiro Otomo’s new movie SHORT PEACE!


Hey! Did you know that last year Katsuhiro Otomo, creator of Akira, made a new movie last year? It’s called ‘Short Peace’ and it contains 4 segments, each directed by a different director including Hiroaki Ando, Hajime Katoki, Shuhei Morita, and Katsuhiro Otomo himself. I am thrilled about this.

The good/bad thing about this is that it’s screening here in Toronto on May 14, and May 17. You can find tickets at Cineplex!

However, we’re GIVING AWAY TICKETS! Thanks to Viz Media and Elevenarts, you can win one of 3 pairs of passes to see SHORT PEACE on either May 14 or 17!

But Wait, There’s More! These passes are also good for ANOTHER movie, if you can’t make it to Short Peace! Another great movie, Tiger & Bunny: The Rising, is screening June 26 and June 29 in Toronto. The passes will work for any of the screenings (but not all of them, you gotta choose).
