The next official screening of Qing Lou Nu will be at GlassCityCon, the premier Toledo-area anime con, taking place at Owens Community College in Perrysburg, Ohio.   The event, which is scheduled for July 17, 2010 from 11AM-12PM, will consist of a screening of Qing Lou Nu, followed by a Q&A conducted by me where I can answer any questions you may have about the film, or the acting industry.

Thank  you for stopping by my blog and stay fabulous!
