■ About “Santa Company: The secret of Christmas”

The 2014 short anime “Santa Company” was funded and produced by Director Itoso and made use of crowdfunding, which was still rare at the time. A variety of techniques were used to also develop teaching materials for educational institutions from materials used for the anime.

“Santa Company: The secret of Christmas” is a major renewal that expands on the story of the short anime.

The studio wishes to bring the movie to even more people and has added tons of new scenes and created an even deeper story.

■ About “Coluboccoro”

“The path I believe in is the future.”

A sci-fi eco fantasy set in a world with a variety of cultures and religions, 14-year-old girl Suzu has inherited the blood of a shrine maiden with mysterious powers. She meets a nature spirit named Coluboccoro and begins to consider who she wants to be and what road she wants to take.

Winner of the Tokyo Anime Award and screened at Cannes Film Festival, these movies highly praised worldwide are getting a renewal. Through tying “Coluboccoro” and “Santa Company” together with simultaneous releases, viewers can enjoy both works even more.
