About JFF2021

It is time for the highlight of the Japanese movie season with The Japan Foundation! The highly anticipated Japanese Film Festival (JFF) returns for it’s 17th edition after over a year-long hiatus and will continue to provide film lovers with the best of Japanese films at selected Golden Screen Cinemas nationwide, from 6 to 23 January 2022.

Showcasing new and acclaimed Japanese films from various genres, this year’s film screening will satisfy the cinematic cravings of those disappointed by the cancellation of JFF 2020, and welcome newcomers to experience the charms of the Japanese cinema. JFF 2021 was initially planned for a September 2021 launch but was brought forward to January 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
