16th Japanese Film Festival
This year's Japanese Film Festival opens in Sydney from 14 - 25 November and Melbourne from 29 November - 9 December.
WHEN: 14/11/2012 to 25/11/2012
WHERE: Event Cinemas, George Street, Sydney
The 16th Japanese Film Festival opens in Sydney from 14 – 25 November at Event Cinemas George Street and MELBOURNE from 29 November – 9 December in two locations, Hoyts Melbourne Central and ACMI Cinemas, Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Tickets are on sale now.
This year’s program features many titles that are now showing in Japan, with some yet to be released.
Opening the festival with a festive start is Japan’s biggest box office hit of the year, Thermae Romae, a laugh-out-loud comedy starring Hiroshi Abe as a time-travelling Roman architect that journeys between ancient Rome and present-day Japan. The film is centred on bath culture, from Japanese bathhouses to Roman baths, the portal between the two eras.
The festival will close with an epic saga, The Floating Castle, based on actual historical events, set in 16th century feudal Japan. It’s the tale of a 20,000 strong army against 500 men in a battle for their lives. Originally set for a September 2011 release, it was postponed to this November due to a large water attack scene that was deemed inappropriate to be released in the same year as the tsunami. Sydney will be simultaneously screening this as Japan.
