The Japanese Film Festival (JFF) returns to Sydney from November 16th to 26th with a line-up of the very best of fresh contemporary and classic Japanese cinema, as part of a huge national tour.

With the program carefully curated by the Japan Foundation, Sydney, the 2017 Festival will present an exciting program of Japanese film and documentary including comedies, samurai and yakuza action, manga adaptions, romance, drama and much more.
 
The Festival will open in true Japanese style with Mumon: The Land of Stealth, an action-packed comedy about a deadly ninja with unmatched strength who accidentally triggers a deadly battle between a Samurai warlord’s army and the ninjas in his province. 

Fans of Anime will be delighted by Katabuchi Sunao’s (Mai Mai Miracle) adaption of Kono Fumiyo’s comic In This Corner of The World, a captivatingly beautiful hand-drawn coming of age story set in turbulent times; and Ancien and The Magic Tablet, a mutli-layered story of mystery and spirited adventure that merges a science-fiction inspired dream world with the beauty of modern-day Okayama.
 
Other program highlights include Birds Without Names, a visceral tale of lust, devotion and redemption fresh from the Toronto International Film Festival; My Uncle, a heartfelt comedy about a young boy who embarks on a transpacific adventure with his eccentric, free-loading uncle; and A Double Life, a poignant drama from first-time feature film director Yoshiyuki Kishi, which was nominated for Best Director and Best Actress at the Raindance Film Festival.
