Welcome To JFF 2021!    Ireland's only truly national film festival

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

We waited to get a better idea of the situation before thinking about rescheduling.

But as some of our partner cinemas have been open and operating safely since earlier this summer, we want to welcome in person those loyal JFF fans who want to return to the cinema and Japanese Film Festival.

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

The 2021 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!
