Norwalk, CT, November 8, 2007: The New York Anime Festival (NYAF) today announced that its full program schedule, including a complete listing of screenings, panels, and special events, is now available for viewing on the festival website at newyorkanimefestival.com. The schedule can be seen by clicking the “Programming” button.
â€œWeâ€™re pleased to make this information available a full month before our show,â€ notes Peter Tatara, Programming Manager for NYAF. â€œWhile weâ€™ve been making announcements all year, this is the first time that we can show how it all fits together and it gives everyone plenty of opportunity to plan their time at NYAF. Weâ€™ve got a great schedule, and Iâ€™ve been getting excellent feedback from fans, which is what I rely on the most! I promise, too, we’ve got some big announcements still to come before December.”
The New York Anime Festival is created and organized by the team behind New York Comic Con and will make its debut December 7-9 at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan . Earlier this year, the 2007 New York Comic Con sold out of Weekend and Saturday passes, and so NYAF recommends attendees purchase their tickets now from newyorkanimefestival.com or at one of its Official Ticket Vendors (Forbidden Planet, Image Anime, Kinokuniya, and St. Mark’s Comics) to ensure entrance in December.
