    If this is old news, a thousand pardons...

    Looks like they're jumping on the pre-screening bandwagon. July 2nd @12:30pm. That means they get the movie 7 and a half hours earlier than everyone else, right? ^_^

    Nope. In Korea I get to see it June 28th. ;-)

    However - thats not the first screening either! It's the 2nd. Some festival in Italy gets first dibs. But first open to public release goes down here in Korea (and New Zealand - both on June 28th). But Korea is a couple hours ahead of NZ. ;-)

    Yea me!

    I'm not as much into anime as I used to be. Can anyone explain in a nutshell what exactly goes in at these anime conventions? Is it a place for vendors to gather and sell their anime wares? Are there any freebies to be had? (food, drink, videos, various schwag, etc.) Traffic is usually pretty bad in downtown Long Beach and parking usually costs an arm an a leg, but I live close enough that I could take the bus there if I wanted to.

    But the LA Film Festival gets it as the US premiere first, so we're even to an extent. ;) 

    Various panels, anime music videos competitions, cosplay gatherings, workshops (Ifind those useless), meeting the guests, and one of the biggest attraction, the merchants' hall where you can shop till you drop or gawk in envy. There's also the masquerade and other events. Free schwag varies each year.
