Dang! I could almost see taking a hotel room downtown to partake of the whole line up.

Though (and I'm not complaining) it still seems kind of weird how they're letting speculative fiction (sf/fantasy) in general, and anime in specific, so dominate the program.

I think, as with the JFest, they've concluded that catering to broader pop-culture lends itself to larger turnouts than sticking primarily to more esoteric fare.

I don't doubt that's the rationale. But in general, "film festivals" are artsy, frou-frou events that fall all over themselves not not look commercial. Again, I'm not complaining, it's just weird.
