The 18th annual Japanese Film Festival will tour nationally around Australia, bringing the latest in Japanese contemporary cinema.

The Japanese Film Festival is the largest Japanese film festival outside of Japan. The 2013 event attracted 25,000 moviegoers nationwide. This year, the festival will expand into New Zealand and feature over 45 contemporary films as well as a classic series and a mini-JFF in some smaller destinations. While we’re stilling waiting on the full program, we can tell you that the live action adaptation of popular manga series Rurouni Kenshin will return to the festival as a trilogy.

The Sydney leg of the Japanese Film Festival 2014 will run from Thursday November 13 to Sunday November 23 at Event Cinemas George St, Parramatta and the Art Gallery of NSW. Tickets start at $15.
