Whether you are pro-35mm or pro-digital supporter, the fact is the film industry is going digital. Yet as film aficionados, we will always have a soft spot for 35mm. That quiet clicking, the gentle purr, that grainy imperfect texture on screen...

Since most cinemas have gone 100% digital and have removed their 35mm projection facilities, it's becoming increasingly harder to locate venues that can run the prints. That is why we are ecstatic to be partnering up with the Art Gallery of New South Wales this year as an additional venue to host Sydney's Classic program!

JFF, Fremantle Festival and Food Flicks

Hello Fremantle! Thanks for having us as a part of the Fremantle Festival program this year! Known as the city for culinary delights, cafes and alfresco dining, let's talk food!

Did you know that last December, washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list? In A Tale of Samurai Cooking - A True Love Story, (pictured), we take a step back to Edo Period (1603-1867), Kaga domain, now modern day Ishikawa Prefecture, famous for its Kaga ryori, traditional cuisines using fresh produce from the local Kanazawa area. This delicious spread is usually served on lacquer ware made in Ishikawa.

A mouth-watering visual feast for the eyes, Haru and her respect and passion for food and flavour is enough to inspire the inner chef within and whet any appetite. So we suggest planning ahead to sample some local Japanese cuisines prior and/ or after watching this film! Starring Aya Ueto (Thermae Romae II), Kengo Kora (A Story of Yonosuke, Norwegian Wood) and Toshiyuki Nishida (Reunion, Star Watching Dog).
