1st Annual Global Shinkai Day

Heartlessly ripped off from Makoto Shinkai English Fan Club Forum:

1st Annual Global Shinkai Day – This world, we think we like it.

What:

In order to celebrate the works of Makoto Shinkai we’ve decided to throw a Global Shinkai Day. We’ll spend 24 hours watching Shinkai’s films, chatting during the movies and having discussions and contests along the way. We hope you will be able to drop in and join the party/conversation Smile

All you need is an internet connection to this site and access to Mr Shinkai’s works. We’ll publish a schedule of when we’d expect folks to be watching certain films and we will have a forum and chat room available for people to share their feedback on the films and Shinkai.

When:

The event will take place starting 1 PM in GMT +12 on February 28th. This is 8 PM EST on February 27th. The schedule of events will be defined in GMT. There is a countdown widget at the bottom of the page and a clock that is set for GMT + 12.

CLOSING COMMENTS: 12:30 PM to 1 PM GMT+12 – 3/1/09

There will be plenty of time between films and groups of films for discussions and for voting and contests (and bathroom breaks).

Where:

I will be hosting on the East Coast, USA. It would be great if folks could get together for this event and watch. Since we do not have rights to show the films online, we are counting on your having access to these films. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Why?:

Why not ? I’ve met many new friends from all over the world that appreciate Mr. Shinkai’s films. I’ve attended several Cons where the showings of his films packed rooms of all sizes. Mr. Shinkai’s works are amazing and we definitely should help spread the love for Mr Shinkai.
