Renowned filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki has secured his first Golden Globe Award for his semi-autobiographical fantasy film, "The Boy and the Heron", in the animated feature category.
Spirited Away was created with so much care and creativity that makes watching it an experience that should not be missed.
This is the fourth time Miyazaki failed to retire. Earlier on, he announced plans to retire in 1997, after his film "Princess Mononoke" was released. And then again in 2001, after the release of "Spirited Away".
In light of ongoing strikes affecting A-list star attendance, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has adapted its approach this year. Despite that hurdle, TIFF successfully unveiled an impressive lineup earlier this week, featuring celebrated directors who are able to attend the festival.
The only information released was a poster drawn by Miyazaki - and even that was only sent to a limited number of cinemas.
Good news for Studio Ghibli fans, Hayao Miyazaki's final "How Do You Live?" will be released in Japanese theaters this summer. However, the makers have used a unique strategy, they are not going to release its trailers or new photos until the film is released.
