Some kinds of movie magic never get old, and Studio Ghibli's films are exactly that type. Understandably, a whole heap of Brisbane cinemas have agreed with that idea over the years, hosting their own events dedicated to the Japanese animation house. The Elizabeth Picture Theatre is one of them, and the venue just keeps bringing back its Ghibli film festival again and again. We understand — who doesn't want to watch these animated delights over and over?

Returning for 2022 this August and September, and screening twice a week from Thursday, August 4–Saturday, September 29 — at 2pm and 7pm on Thursdays and Sundays, to be specific — this year's fest gives fans yet another chance to catch Studio Ghibli's gorgeous features on the big screen. Yes, you should make like a moving castle to see Howl's Moving Castle this time. And yes, you'll be palling around with My Neighbour Totoro once again.

Other highlights include Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke — which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2022 — and Porco Rosso. From the studio's more recent flicks, there's also From Up on Poppy Hill and The Wind Rises.

If you've missed these films in their limited cinema runs or fest appearances in the past, consider this your chance to catch up. Sure, you might've seen everything that Studio Ghibli has made before — but these movies really are something extra special when they're flickering across the silver screen.
