Japanese Film Festival

The Japanese Film Festival is Ireland’s only truly national film festival, and currently takes place every year in April.

A collaboration between the Embassy of Japan and access>CINEMA with support from the Ireland Japan Association and the Japan Foundation, the aim of the festival is to bring a diverse and eclectic programme of Japanese cinema to Irish audiences.

The Festival has grown from its beginnings in 2008 when 4 films screened in 3 locations to an event in 2015 that encompassed 48 screenings of 18 films across 10 venues in 7 locations nationally.

In 2016 the Festival programme features work of the most acclaimed filmmakers from contemporary Japanese cinema, and covers a variety of themes, genres and topics.

The 2016 Festival will present screenings in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Dundalk and Sligo.
