is back this October and it has some big gets. The animation film festival always has some amazing films to see.

Some of the gets are:

The Boy and the Heron from Miyazaki is sadly already sold out, maybe they'll do a encore showing if everyone asks? It won't be the North American premiere, but would be the first screening of it on the West Coast.

Both 100 years of WB and Disney special screenings. WB's will show off its special stop-motion short Daffy in Wackyland.

 The Concierge from Japan is another one we've been waiting for about a human woman trying to sell things to animals in a mall, it looks beautiful.

Starts Friday in select theaters
In the summer of 2012, four teenagers from Malibu mysteriously vanished without a trace. Now, after uncovering new evidence, Josh Davidson leads his amateur team of paranormal investigators to a forgotten cave located on a sacred burial ground. As the team searches for the missing teens, they discover the horrifying truth, and come face to face with an ancient evil.
