The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2017
Odd Obsessions - Desires, Hopes and Impulses in Japanese Cinema
3 February to 29 March 2017
A huge thank you for being part of this year’s Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme. A total of 103 screenings across the UK made 2017 our most successful film season to date.
This year we were lucky enough to host 3 directors Shuichi Okita (The Mohican Comes Home), Daishi Matsunaga (Pieta in the Toilet) and Naotaro Endo (Tsukiji Wonderland) and partner with a total of 15 venues.
We hope you enjoyed our selection of films and we look forward to returning with an equally exciting selection next year!
This programme is organised and programmed by Junko Takekawa, Paul Graham, Emily Watts (The Japan Foundation, London) and Yuri Kubota (The Japan Foundation Head Office, Tokyo). Special thanks to Alex Jacoby, Kiyomi Nakazaki and Jasper Sharp.
