The 18th Japanese Film Festival (JFF) will begin its national tour starting mid-October in Adelaide, and continues to other major Australian cities until its final stop in Melbourne in December.
The JFF is growing both domestically and internationally this year! In Australia, the JFF expands to include new venues: Adelaide’s Mercury Cinema, Sydney’s Event Cinemas Parramatta, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Fremantle’s Hoyts Millennium. Internationally, the JFF debuts in Auckland from November 6 at Rialto Cinemas, Newmarket.
In each city, over 10 of the latest feature films will be screened. Flagship cities Sydney and Melbourne will enjoy an even greater program comprising of 45+ films. The full programme is yet to be announced but the festival has confirmed the live-action adaptation of popular manga series, Rurouni Kenshin will return to the Festival as a trilogy in 2014.
