Madman Entertainment are proud to announce that the second film for the REEL ANIME 2013 program will be 009 RE: CYBORG.

009 RE: CYBORG is a feature length reboot of the famous manga from the 1960s, produced by Production I.G. (GHOST IN THE SHELL) and directed by Kenji Kamiyama – series director for GHOST IN THE SHELL: STAND ALONE COMPLEX and EDEN OF THE EAST.

The film will also screen in glorious stereoscopic 3D, the first Japanese anime feature film to do so in Australia and New Zealand.

009 RE: CYBORG joins EVANGELION: 3.0 YOU CAN (NOT) REDO in a stellar line up of four of the best new animated feature films direct from Japan. Program dates and further films for REEL ANIME 2013 will be confirmed during the next two Australian Supanova Pop Culture Expo events - Sydney (June 21-23) and Perth (June 28-30).

Traditionally a bi-annual event, 2013 will mark the first time REEL ANIME screens as a yearly program. REEL ANIME 2012 ran from September 13-26 in Australia and late November/early December in New Zealand. The program included Studio Ghibli’s FROM UP ON POPPY HILL, Mamoru Hosoda’s WOLF CHILDREN (winner of the prestigious ‘Animation of the Year’ 2013 Japan Academy Prize award), Makoto Shinkai’s CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES and the first film in the new Berserk Golden Age Arc trilogy, BERSERK MOVIE 1: THE EGG OF THE KING.

REEL ANIME 2013 will screen in selected cinema locations across Australia and New Zealand.
