We are happy to announce the dates for Kotatsu 2017! The Cardiff event will be held from 29th September to 1st October at Chapter. The date for Aberystwyth will be announced soon.

Due to the increased popularity last year at Chapter, this year’s festival will take place over 3 days, bringing you even more quality films and our usual Japanese Marketplace showcasing Japanese themed goods and traditional bento boxes.

Every year, we pride ourselves on screening lots of Welsh Premieres, while offering fun events such as a Manga workshop and a Raffle, which will be held on the last day, with lots of exciting prizes on offer at both Chapter and Aberystwyth Arts Center.  Tickets will be made available nearer the festival. Please note: the marketplace and Manga workshop will be held only at Chapter.

We hope to see you all again in September, for this year’s Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival.
