Hayao Miyazaki Conferred With The 38th Kawakita Award

Ghibli Studio's co-founder and animation director Hayao Miyazaki was the recipient of the 38th Kawakita Award on August 26 by The Kawakita Memorial Film Institute.

The award is named after the late film producer Nagamasa Kawakita by his wife Kashiko Kawakita. The award is given to individuals whose body of work contributed greatly to developing the art and culture of Japanese cinema or opens the doors for international exchange through film. The Kawakita Memorial Film Institute stated that Miyazaki was awarded for his "movies that continue to move and inspire generations of people to dream, and earn acclaim both in Japan and abroad."

The first animator to receive the award was Koji Yamamura, the Academy Award-nominee, with the 30th Kawakita Award in 2012. The Kawakita Award was created in 1983 to honour individuals or organizations who have contributed to the promotion of Japanese cinema overseas. Its first recipient was Donald Richie.
