Japanese Film Festival 2013

webbanner_jff2013We’re unforgivably late in publicizing this, but the annual Japanese Film Festival is on again in Singapore.

Built around four themes – Currents, Undercurrents, Around the 80s and Retrospective (of Shindo Kaneto and Yoshimura Kozaburo) – the festival is a welcome respite from the Hollywood fare we’re usually offered in local cinemas.

Highlights include GFP Bunny, Man Who Stole the Sun, Rentaneko (reviewed here) and many more.

The festival runs till July 7, and tickets can be purchased from TicketBooth. Selected free screenings are also available. View the full schedule at the festival web site, or link-up with the festival on Facebook.

Kudos to the festival crew for organizing this wonderful showcase of Japanese cinema. Stay tuned for S.C.U.M. reviews of selected films from the festival!
