The Japanese Film Festival 2019

From a glitzy murder mystery with an ensemble cast of Japanese screen stars to a sun-drenched romance from the animation genius behind cult hit Night is Short, Walk on Girl, the Japanese Film Festival (JFF) returns with a brand new program jam-packed with the very best in contemporary Japanese cinema.

This year’s program brings new perspectives in Japanese film, reviving the old and giving lesser-known stories a chance in the spotlight.  

Catch the festival in Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne from 16 October – 1 December 2019.
