Pompo the Cinephile set for UK Cinema Release in June 2022

Anime Limited, otherwise known as All The Anime, have announced that the debut feature film by the new animation studio CLAP Pompo the Cinephile will be available across the UK in selected cinemas from 29th June 2022 in both dubbed and subtitled formats.

Pompo the Cinephile, which sees Gene Fini, an assistant at the acclaimed Peterson Films in the heart of the glitz and glamour of Nyallywood, who works alongside Joelle Davidovich “Pompo” Pomponette to direct a film. As part of this animated film, about directing films, Gene will learn that it takes a family to make a film.

Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in “Nyallywood,” the movie-making capital of the world. Although she’s known for B-movies, one day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene that he will direct her next script: a delicate drama about a tormented artistic genius, starring the legendary and Brando-esque actor Martin Braddock, and a young actress seeking her first break. But when the production heads towards chaos, can Gene rise to Pompo’s challenge, and succeed as a first-time director?

Directed by veteran animator Takayuki Hirao and produced by brand-new animation studio CLAP, Pompo the Cinephile is a rollicking, exuberant ode to the power of the movies, and the joys and heartbreak of the creative process, as a new director and his team devote their lives to the pursuit of a “masterpiece.”

Pompo the Cinephile will be available in selected cinemas across the UK from 29th June 2022 (subtitled) and 30th June 2022 (dubbed). Further details, including available locations and tickets, will be available through the official website shortly.
