Japanese Film Festival Online 2022

Pre-event: November 15 – 21, 2021
Main event: February 14 to 27, 2022

The Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with the Japan Foundation, is very pleased to announce that the Japan Foundation Japanese Film Festival Online will be back in 2022 and accessible to people across New Zealand.

Ahead of the Main event (February 2022), a pre-event will be held from November 15 to 21, 2021, during which five films from the previous festival will again be available to viewers.

This festival provides the opportunity to experience various Japanese social and cultural traditions, lifestyles and values ​​while enjoying the creativity and art form of Japanese cinema.

Viewers can experience Japanese films from the comfort of their own homes or elsewhere on devices accessible over the Internet.

We hope that this wide variety of Japanese films will provide a rewarding experience for New Zealanders, especially those who face uncertainty and difficulty in getting to the cinema in certain parts of the country.

Please see the Japanese Film Festival website for more information:

Access to the Film Festival Online is free. All films have English subtitles.
