Welcome To JFF 2020    

Ireland's only truly national film festival

Ireland's Japanese Film Festival is back!

Earlier this year it was disappointing for everyone when the annual Japanese Film Festival Ireland event in April had to be postponed.

The Festival has waited to get a better idea of the situation before thinking about rescheduling and it knows that things are still changing.

But as some of our partner cinemas have been open and operating safely since July, the Festival wants to support and welcome those loyal JFF fans who want to return to the cinema.

So while this edition will be a bit smaller that normal, we are planning to host screenings at venues in Cork, Galway and Dubin.

The 2020 Festival features another diverse and packed programme of films, which includes work of the most acclaimed filmmakers from contemporary Japanese cinema, and covers a variety of themes, genres and topics.

We welcome those who will be able to join us.

Enjoy & Arigato!
