HAYAO MIYAZAKI is one the most influential creators of cinematic animation in the world. Born in 1941 in Tokyo, Japan, he directed his first feature film (THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO) in 1979 and wrote and directed a second feature, (NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND), based on his own original graphic novel in 1984. Miyazaki co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985 with Isao Takahata, and has directed ten feature films at the studio, including CASTLE IN THE SKY (1986), MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO (1988), KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE (1989), PORCO ROSSO (1992) and PRINCESS MONONOKE (1997).

SPIRITED AWAY (2001) broke every box office record in Japan, and garnered many awards, including the Golden Bear at the 2002 Berlin International Film Festival and the 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE (2004) received the Osella Award at the 2004 Venice International Film Festival. Miyazaki was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2005 Venice International Film Festival. In 2008, he wrote and directed PONYO. His latest film, THE WIND RISES (2013), was nominated for the 2013 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. In November 2014, the Board of Governors for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented him with an Honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement.

In 2012, Miyazaki was named a "Person of Cultural Merit" by The Government of Japan. In July 2014, he was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame. He is currently working on new production.
