The initial phase will see five Japanese films screened between November 15 and November 21.

The films have already premiered at JFF Online 2020 and Japan Hour last year, including ‘Dance with me’, ‘Gon, the Little Fox’, ‘Little Nights, Little Love’, ‘The Great Passage’ and ‘Tora- san in Go to’.

The second phase will run from February 14, 2022 to February 27, 2022 and will see the participation of 20 films.

Along with these five films, the second phase will feature “The Flavor of Green Tea on Rice”, “Tokyo Marbled Chocolate”, “Documentary” and a few others.

The films represent a variety of genres, including comedy, musical, drama, romance, animation, and documentary.

The JFF is a project led by the Japan Foundation to promote Japanese films around the world. Under the slogan “Japanese Film Anytime, Anywhere”, the project was initially launched in 2016 for 10 ASEAN countries and Australia.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s festival will be held virtually and 20 Japanese films will be screened in two phases.
