Pompo: The Cinephile centres on the story of two very different cinephiles joining forces to make a film. Joelle Davidovich Pomponette (Pompo-san), a talented film producer at the movie capital "Nyallywood." Despite her prowess to see through to the potential of actors and staff and bring out their talent to the fullest, she has only been producing B-class action and erotic films.

One day, Pompo's "film-worm" assistant Gene, who has been doubtful of her choices of film genres, is given the task to direct a film based on a script written by her. Will Gene be able to bring Pompo's "masterpiece" to fruition?

Pompo: The Cinephile follows the joys and heartbreak of the creative process. Directed by veteran animator Takayuki Hirao and produced by brand new animation studio CLAP.

Screenings of this film in the daytime will be dubbed into English. After 5pm the screenings will be in the original Japanese, with English subtitles.
