The Japanese Film Festival 2022 program explores a spectrum of emotions, with stories that challenge old truths and portray the diversity of the human experience.
This year when you meet us at the cinema, you might join forces with an unlikely team, who work to uncover the secrets that lie behind the first map of Japan.
You may even meet a quirky pair of teenage assassins learning to cohabitate and adjust to the facade of ‘normal life’, or four elite chefs in Tokyo who work tirelessly to perfect their craft.
Featuring the latest box office hits alongside rare 35mm film screenings of master filmmaker Mikio Naruse’s works, there’s bound to be something for everyone in this year’s line-up.
The JFF is presented by The Japan Foundation, Sydney and tours five major cities across Australia.
