Date posted: 30.03.2011

The Bexley Anime and Manga Film Festival (BAM) is set for its return to South East London and will run from 4 April to 10 May. The festival, which is funded by Film London, is offering the capital's film fans a rare opportunity to see some of the most cutting edge animation in Japanese entertainment.

The Festival's programme includes stunning examples of anime. Screenings at the BAM Festival kick off on 7 April with a screening of Trigun Badlands Rumble, a sci-fi/wild west film which will be enjoying one its first UK screenings at the festival. Other highlights include Sword of the Stranger, an incredible action movie which demands big screen viewing, and King of Thorn a sci-fi psychological thriller.

The festival concludes with a preview screening of Redline, a film some have suggested to be one of the most important anime films to hit screens in years. Screenings cost an amazing £3 per person.

The festival is made possible by support from the London Borough of Bexley with funding from Film London's Cultural Film Exhibition Fund and contributions from the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Youth Opportunities Fund.
