Info on the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2021 which is online and free to view for people in the UK - running from 19 February to 10 March 2021
Yeah i forgot to book days ago too thinking that I could do it closer to the date.... nope. 😴... Aaand everything was already sold out before I even got around to looking at booking for Hello World on Sunday past. 😑
They clearly didn't have enough slots on offer, did they? How disappointing.
Restricting virtual tickets does seem a bit stupid though, must be some reason I guess.
I presume the idea was to pretend it's like being at the cinema so there would be limited capacity, but I feel that this whole ticket system is ridiculously stupid. I would rather have them set it up so that we can get tickets but there's no limitation so that they would then be able to see what film is the most viewed.Agreed, at the face of it they should be happy to get more money for hardly any extra expense. Unless there are license issues (i,e, they can only offer X number of tickets)
Yeah... 😬I too thought it wouldn't be limited if it was online
Fantastic, thanks for the heads up. Managed to nab a ticket for hello world just now but seems most others still sold out booo! Hey ho, still keep checking in case more open up.I was lucky enough to be able to watch Hello World (and Haruka's Pottery). There's some more tickets getting released this week, but I'm not sure if it includes Hello World.
I went into Hello World completely blind, I did not know it was 3D animation, and when or where it was set. I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised. The animation itself was quite good, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being Orange studio standard and 1 being Ex-Arm, I would place it around 8.
I was getting Girl Who Leapt Through Time vibes from it (Afterwards I checked and the Director worked on GWLTT).
A few pacing issues, but I would still recommend it to watch. 7.5/10
Thanks to you, dude, so did I. Thank you! 👏Managed to nab a ticket for hello world just now
What is this world we have created?Creating artificial scarcity by only offering a limited number of tickets TO A FREE LIVESTREAM
Was able to watch Hello World last night. Really enjoyed it! Like you I went in knowing absolutely nothing about it and came out glad I'd watched it.I was getting Girl Who Leapt Through Time vibes from it (Afterwards I checked and the Director worked on GWLTT).
