Evangelion 3.0 Screening at San Francisco Japan Film Festival

jffsfSince the Japan Film Festival of San Francisco teamed up with Funimation this year, the festival will be premiering two screenings of Evangelion 3.0, You Can (Not) Redo during this summer’s event which takes place between Saturday, July 27th through Sunday, August 4th. There will be a screening on Saturday, July 27 at 11am, Monday, July 29th at 7pm and another at 11am on Sunday, August 4th.

From a recent press release:

“We’re extremely honored to make this U.S. premiere of Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo a special part of the first-ever Japan Film Festival of San Francisco,” says Manami Iiboshi, the Executive Director of Japan Film Festival of San Francisco. “The film was one of the biggest recent movie blockbusters in Japan and its screening at the 2013 J-POP Summit will be a must-see for many anime fans! We know this show may sell-out so we have also announced a pair of encore showings the following week. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch the exciting latest chapter in one of Japan’s most celebrated sci-fi properties on the big screen at San Francisco’s one-and-only NEW PEOPLE Cinema!”

Ticketing and venue information:

The film will be the Japanese dub with English subtitles. The film festival’s page indicates that the running time is 106 minutes (but the schedule says 96) which probably means we’ll see the God Warrior short right before the movie. I’m told that the “New People Cinema” is a relatively small venue, so book your tickets sooner than later if you plan on attending.
