EIGA SAI 2014 JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL TAKES THE LEAD ON JULY 3, 2014

The Philippines and Japan have a lot of things in common. In the recent past, the two countries have experienced devastating disasters – loss of countless lives and resources. In times of difficulties, we all come to realize the value the family, not only the immediate members but also extended families – neighbors and communities. The value of the family is an example of commonalities for both Japan and the Philippines so with the fact that both countries are disaster-prone.

With this year’s theme of the “Family”, The Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM) is presenting 16 contemporary Japanese films that deal with various stories of families. 

All films will be shown with English subtitles. Screening venues are at the Shang Cineplex Cinema 2 (July 3 to 13), Abreeza Mall Cinema, Ayala (July 25 to 27) and FDCP Cinematheque, Davao City (July 29 to August 3) and Ayala Center Cinema 4, Cebu City (August 6 to 10).
