Japanese Film Festival 2019

8 Nov 2019 (Fri) - 10 Nov 2019 (Sun)

Roxy Cinema, 5 Park Road, Miramar, Wellington

The Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with the Japan Foundation, is very pleased to announce the return of the Japanese Film Festival to Wellington.
The Japanese Film Festival is an annual event held to encourage the growth of Japanese culture and understanding in New Zealand. Each year, we try to give the people of New Zealand some insight into the culture, customs, and traditions of Japan, alongside what is popular with Japanese society today, through film.

All films will be in Japanese with English subtitles.

This year, Japanese Film Festival will feature six films from a variety of genres including drama, comedy, mystery and animation. The opening film “Born Bone Born” (Japanese title Senkotsu, “Bone-washing”) revolves around an almost-extinct funerary tradition in Okinawa, Japan. This award-winning drama weaves a heart-warming tale of a dysfunctional family brought back together through the funeral customs and rites of their late mother. Also of interest is the stunning visual rainbow of bold imagery and animation in the family-friendly feature film “Lu Over the Wall”, which took the Annecy International Animated Film Festival by storm.
