This late addition to the LIFF25 programme is a free presentation of a beautiful new short-length anime from Japan that has mesmerised audiences in Tokyo since its recent release. A young girl called Hotaru is lost and alone in an enchanted forest. She meets a spirit boy called Gin who helps her to get home. Fascinated by the appearance of Gin and his mysterious nature, Hotaru is drawn back to the forest again and again for more encounters with him. But Gin is one touch away from disappearing from Hotaru’s life forever. In the Forest of the Fireflies Light won the Jury Award at the Scotland Loves Anime Festival in October.
