Given the popularity of the yearly Anime Expo, it's a little surprising L.A. doesn't have a way to recognize the art of anime itself. With the debut of the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival (LA-AFF), that's about to change. For three days, LA-AFF presents nothing but anime, from fan favorites to brand-new flicks. Organized by Rydgen Inc. and Azoland Pictures, the festival not only screens more than 20 anime films but also includes a roster of Q&As with filmmakers. Celebrate the 100th anniversary of anime in Japan with a weekend-long birthday party honoring the enduring art of Japanese animation.
