The 15th Japanese Film Festival 2018
6th September — 7th October 2018
The Japanese Film Festival is back again and this year, marked its 15th years of its screening in Malaysia. For 15 years, we’ve travelled to Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kuching and Sabah to screen the films. Starting this year, we added 1 more state to join the film festival celebrations and JFF2018 will make its screening debut in Johor Bahru!
13 Japanese films will be screened from collective mixed genres from romantic comedy, suspense youth drama, documentary, feature and more.
Also, to commemorate the 15th years of Malaysians support to the Japanese Films and to appreciate our long-time JFF supporters from year 1 until today, we’ve line up few special screenings in Kuala Lumpur.
First up is, Chihayafuru films marathon (Part 1 - Part 3). Secondly, we also added 6 films that were shot in Japan which were directed by Malaysian film directors. Both programs are set to screen at GSC Nu Sentral, Kuala Lumpur.
We hope that audiences will have most memorable experience possible, through a diverse selection of the high-quality of Japanese films for this year too!
