SIFF is showing 15 Studio Ghibli films, most of them in both English and Japanese, over the next two weeks.
If you are not familiar with this work, this is a wonderful opportunity to repair that tragic failure. I think all of the films are fine for children, most of them are brilliant for children, and nearly all of them are simply brilliant.
Small children will adore My Neighbor Totoro, Pom Poko, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, and Ponyo. Those over 9 or so will love Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and The Cat Returns. Those over 12 will enjoy Castle in the Sky, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away although these may be frightening or too violent for some younger children. I'm not sure if younger audiences would appreciate Whisper of the Heart, Ocean Waves, or Only Yesterday, and, to be honest, I'm not familiar with the film My Neighbors the Yamada's.
I can recommend all of these films for adult audiences, even those that young children would enjoy.
The films are available on DVD, but you should take this opportunity to see them on the big screen.
