Announcing this year's line up of films and our brand new website! 
Hi JFF Fans,

It's time to unfold the festival line up for 2013!
For the first time in festival history, our core line up of 12 box office hits will travel to all 5 cities! 

And that's just the beginning - stay tuned for more films that will be announced for Sydney and Melbourne, in addition to our core line up. We hope you are as excited as we are about the program!



Kicking off the festival is The Great Passage, a tribute to the world of words starring two of Japan’s ‘so hot right now’ actors, Ryuhei Matsuda and Aoi Miyazaki.
Looking for something a bit scary? Catch Real, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s psychological spine-chiller, bound to have you gripped to your chair.

For manga fans, you’ll be thrilled to see the much anticipated Gatchaman coming your way. It’s destined to become one of the biggest Japanese blockbusters this year.
Would you wait 2 hours for a hot bowl of ramen, knowing it was the best in town? Many would. Tantalise your taste buds with The God of Ramen, a true story of one man’s dedication to the perfect bowl.

Wrapping up the festival is Fruits of Faith, a drama encapsulating the Japanese spirit of dedication in the quest for the perfect and near impossible organic apple crop. A heart-warming conclusion to the festival :)

Check out the rest of the line up now on the brand new JFF website!

Ticket on sale dates will be released soon but in the meantime, why not start creating your wish list?
