Japanese Film Festival 2014

Japanese Film Festival 2014

9-13 September 2014, Free Admission
Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision (previously New Zealand Film Archive)
84 Taranaki Street, Wellington

The Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, is very pleased to introduce the Japan Foundation’s Japanese Film Festival 2014.

This year, the ever-popular Japanese Film Festival will feature six films across a variety of genres from human drama, to comedy and animation. They provide the viewer with an exciting opportunity to deepen their familiarity with Japanese culture and society.

A different film will be shown each night from 6pm between Tuesday 9th and Friday 12th September. ‘Doraemon and the Little Dinosaur’ animation will be shown at 2pm and 4:15pm on Saturday, 13th September. Due to his popularity both within Japan and internationally, the character Doraemon has become an official cultural ambassador for Japan. The festival concludes Saturday evening with the light-hearted comedy ‘The Chef of South Polar’ at 6:30pm.

Admission is free to all sessions and tickets will be issued at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision from one hour before each screening on a first-come, first-served basis. More details about the festival can be found at: http://www.nz.emb-japan.go.jp .
