The Toonseum in Pittsburgh is sponsoring a fund-raiser for Artists Help Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Fund. Proceeds go to those afflicted by the massive quake and tsunami in Japan. On Saturday March 26th the museum will screen three anime movies from Japan’s greatest contemporary animators. The movies that will be shown that day are: Kiki’s Delivery Service” (Hayao Miyazaki), 5 Centimeters Per Second” (Makoto Shinkai), and Millennium Actress (Satoshi Kon).
