Serieteket is one of my favorite places in Oslo! A library devoted to comics must be one of the most brilliant ideas in the history of man! Right up there with the invention of the wheel and the theory of relativity in my opinion.
When Serieteket this weekend had an event dedicated to comics – Mangapolis had to be a part of it. And we never regreted it! It was amazing! Therefore I would like to thank everbody that was part of this awesome festival and everyone that found their way to Seriefest this weekend.
Let´s make it annual!
No, not that kind of dates…
…but just as tasty are these dates:
April 26-28: Seriefest
June 7-8: Oslo Comic Expo
June 29-30: Desucon8
October 10-20: Films from the South
At Seriefest, as you already know, Mangapolis is represented, as for the others…you will just have to wait and see…
Now, how about them dates?
A celebration of comics and comic culture at Serieteket in Oslo at Schous Plass this April!
Deichmanske Grünerløkka gives us three days of Seriefest! And Mangapolis has been invited to screen Wolf Children, the movie that filled every screening to the brink at last years Films from the South Festival and ran away with two awards.
Introducing Wolf Children at Seriefest is Hans Ivar Stordal which is a well known citizen of Mangapolis. He was first introduced to us as the host in a Q&A with Eric Khoo (director of the animated movie Tatsumi) back in 2011. This time Hans Ivar will kick off the second day of Seriefest with a lecture on manga and anime. You can read Hans Ivar´s blog here.
Don´t miss out on this year´s first major Mangapolis event at Serieteket April 27th.
