The Japanese Film Festival at Dendy
Dendy invites you to celebrate
Dendy invites you to celebrate the 21st Japanese Film Festival! Come and see some of the best Japanese films from the 13th to the 22nd of October.
The Japanese Film Festival brings the best Japanese cinema of 2017 to Canberra, and around Australia. This year’s program shares a spectrum of emotions, human experiences, and boldly delves into new territory for Japanese cinema. Sensitive portrayals of modern families and stories of diversity, acceptance, and resilience sit alongside old favourites of action, mystery, and comedy.
For anime-lovers, Ancien and the Magic Tablet shares an adventure through fantasy and reality, while In this Corner of the World offers a moving story for mature anime fans.
Award-winning crime and mystery highlights include Birds Without Names and Rage.
My Uncle, Tori Girl, and Hamon: Yakuza Boogie will have comedy fans in stitches with quirky tales of misfortune and serendipity!
For fans of sophisticated drama and relationships, Radiance and Her Love Boils Bathwater share poetic portrayals of human fragility.
FLOWER AND SWORD offers insights to traditional Japanese values and aesthetic culture in a beautifully presented period drama. For a period film with more ninja action, opening title MUMON: The Land of Stealth will not disappoint!
