Video program overview

We are not called AnimeCon for nothing! Most of us started as dedicated Anime fans so we splash out with a 52 hour program showing movies and TV series at multiple locations during the festival.

We will have a full program of films and series, including the newest movies and Anime series currently in season in Japan. Anime and Live Action will be delivered to you at full HD in quiet rooms, the movies with full surround sound.

Usually the most important question visitors ask about the video program is: what is the surprise movie this year? Well, it is a surprise and if you want to know the title, your will just have to go the the Mississippi on Sunday at 15:50.

Daytime program

During the day we will have three video rooms on the first floor showing a continuous program. 

Pride of place this year is taken by Your name by Makoto Shinkai. The first major anime movie to be shown in Dutch cinema's in over 15 years! All this thanks to the efforts by Periscoop film. As we want to give every Dutch Otaku a chance to see this movie in a cinema we decided to show Your name on every day of the festival

Other movies you should not miss are In this Corner of the World and The Red Turtle that is shown after a lecture on the movie.

While the video rooms are ideal places to wind down a bit and relax, consumption of food and drinks is not allowed in these rooms. The video program is continuous with at most a couple of minutes pause between screenings. This means we cannot clean the rooms during the day.

Mississippi Room

The Mississippi is where we show movies and special video items.

Yangtze 1 & Yangtze 2

In the two Yangtze rooms we show Anime TV series during the day.

Night program

During the night we concentrate the festival on the ground floor of the World Forum, so we switch video rooms. One advantage is that you may watch movies while enjoying your consumption in the Alexia room / Ushi Combat Dojo.

Alexia room / Ushi Combat Dojo

Used during the day as the Ushi Combat Dojo. In the evening we will use this room first for the Whisky and Sake tastings and then we leave the chairs and tables in place and convert the room to a luxury movie theater for the night, where you can nip your refreshments seated behind a table while watching our infamous night program.

Antarctica / G & P Collectibles

Some Anime cannot be shown during the day, that is why we have a separate room to show these series during the night.
