GFC Exclusives 

In 1995, Katsuhiro Otomo’s epic anthology MEMORIES showcased the work of upcoming superstars of the anime world. Now, Otomo’s spotlight shifts to a fresh generation of master creators with an all-new anthology of visionary films.  

A lone traveler is confronted by unusual spirits in an abandoned shrine in the 2013 Academy Award® nominated POSSESSIONS (TSUKUMO), directed by Shuhei Morita (COICENT, KAKURENBO). A mysterious white bear defends the royal family from the predations of a red demon in the brutal GAMBO, directed by Hiroaki Ando (FIVE NUMBERS!) from REDLINE’s Katsuhito Ishii’s original story with character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION). The focus shifts from supernatural to science fiction for the action packed A FAREWELL TO ARMS (BUKI YO SARABA), as MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM designer Hajime Katoki helms Otomo’s tour-de-force saga of men battling robotic tanks in apocalyptic Tokyo, while grandmaster Otomo himself assumes the directorial reigns for a spectacular tale of love, honor and firefighting in ancient Japan with the multi-award winning COMBUSTIBLE (HI-NO-YOUJIN). 

Prepare your senses for the animated films that are taking the critical world by storm as a new era in anime is ushered in with Katsuhiro Otomo’s SHORT PEACE!

For his wife Evelyn and best friend Max Waters, both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can - but if they should.

The Unknown Known
Premiere: Friday, April 11 • PG-13 • Documentary / Political • 96 mins

GFC Exclusive

In THE UNKNOWN KNOWN, Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris (THE FOG OF WAR) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public.  Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense.  These memos provide a window onto history—not history as it actually happened, but history as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain that Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes”—whether intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history—are contradicted by the facts.   THE UNKNOWN KNOWN is an illumination of the mystery of Donald Rumsfeld, an unknown known.

Chasing Ice
Premiere: Friday, March 07 • NR • Documentary • -

After hosting hundreds of screenings of Chasing Ice around the world, our team believes that the only way to make progress with climate change is to get our political leaders to understand the science. Unlike other campaigns, this tour focuses on supporting one Congressman at a time, providing them with both the visual evidence and the support they need from their constituents.

In partnership with National Geographic, Chasing Ice recently launched the Chasing Ice Ohio Tour 2014; an initiative to share the story and visual evidence of our changing climate to central Ohio residents through FREE screening events. Film screenings are followed by an interactive Q&A discussion led by Director/Producer, Jeff Orlowski, and/ or the Chasing Ice team, with the hope to connect the dots between changes we are seeing worldwide and the impact that these changes are having on central Ohio.
