Back-to-back screening of Shinkai films in Manila on 20 July 2013

As part of the celebrations to mark the Philippines-Japan Friendship Month 2013 and
the 40th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation, the Japanese Embassy in the Philippines is co-sponsoring a screening of Shinkai Makoto’s films The Place Promised in Our Early Days and 5 Centimeters Per Second.

According to a press release on the Embassy website, the event will take place at SM CINEMA Center Stage, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City on the 20th of July, 2013, from 1 to 5 PM.

Which means that unless the schedule changes, anime fans in the Manila area will have one more reason to haul themselves out of bed before dusk come next Saturday.
