Bid Farewell to Studio Ghibli Events in Indonesia with Their Last Film Screenings

Good time always comes to an end, and it is the case for Studio Ghibli events in Indonesia as well. Beginning their journey in 2016, the animation studio began their expansion in Indonesia by holding film screenings, exhibitions, fan art competitions among many others engagements. Indonesia’s Ghibli fans were treated with film screenings that feature the animation studio’s most loved films like “Spirited Away”, “My Neighbor Totoro”, “Ponyo”, “Princess Mononoke” and many more. As “Spirited Away” was first screened in Indonesia on August 2016 and helped paved the way for Studio Ghibli further engagement in Indonesia, the film is once again chosen to close out the festivity. From 26 – 30 March 2018, you can also watch other films like “Pom Poko”, “When Marnie Was There”, “My Neighbor Totoro”, and “Princess Mononoke” at 5 selected CGV cinemas across Indonesia. As a farewell gift for the never ending support from Indonesian fans, a huge installation of Totoro can also be seen for the last time at Grand Indonesia Shopping Mall. We will surely miss this huge furry gentle creature as he will reportedly be returned to Japan once the last fringe of events are done.

“Bringing Studio Ghibli to Indonesia isn’t easy, but all was paid off once we saw the enthusiasm and warm welcome from the fans here. Truly exceptional! We’re very grateful, all the suggestions and critiques are new lessons for us. We are thankful for the trust that we have received in the past two years and hope that Indonesians will have a special place in their hearts for Studio Ghibli,” said Tomofumi Fukuda, CEO of Marubeni Indonesia, the official partner of Studio Ghibli in Indonesia. You’d be able to see the fan arts being displayed during the last screening of Studio Ghibli movies. Those artworks belong to Claren Stefanie, Satria A.,Handi Tan, Ning Fathia, Wishnu Wardhana, Cecillia Hidayat, Junissa Hardianto, Abi Septryawan, and Heru Kusumah which were chosen among 650 fan art submissions. Their works will also be given to Studio Ghibli’s representatives in Japan. The schedule for the last round of screening is as follows
