Japan’s earliest animated films


Watch sixty-four of Japan’s earliest animated films at Japanese Animated Film Classics. Read a little more about the project here: “While digitizing the film archives we created a research team in 2014 to look at ways to preserve and use them. So we selected a wide range of films, mostly that were in the public domain because the copyright had expired, to create Japanese Animated Film Classics,” Kazuki Miura, from the research team at the Film Center, told The Hollywood Reporter.

“We decided to put English subtitles on the films so they would be accessible to people from around the world.”
