28 Dec – The Japanese Film Festival (JFF) returns to Malaysia, albeit a little delayed after over a year-long hiatus. Its arrival each year is always met with welcoming anticipation.
The Japanese Film Festival 2021 brings in a total of 13 Japanese titles for the big screens and they encompass a variety of genres to pick from! Showcasing new and acclaimed Japanese films from various genres - from family and drama to comedy - this year's film screenings will satisfy the cinematic cravings of Japanese film fans as well as welcome newcomers to experience the charms of the Japanese cinema.
In fact, one would be spoilt for choice, for these selections of films will capture the hearts and minds of audiences from all ages.
It is noted JFF 2021 was initially planned for a September 2021 launch but was brought forward to January 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the same reasons, the JFF 2020 was cancelled, much to fans' disappointment.
The JFF continues to provide film lovers with the best of Japanese films at selected Golden Screen Cinemas nationwide in January 2022. The tickets for JFF 2021 will be sold at RM9.50 and can be purchased two days before the first day of screening at each region. SOPs will be adhered at and during all screenings.
The month-long film screenings will begin in Klang Valley from 6 to 12 January before simultaneously heading North in Penang and to the South in Johor Bahru on 13 to 16 January. It will then cross over to the East Malaysia to wrap up in Kuching, Sarawak and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah from 20 to 23 January.
All films presented will be in Japanese with English subtitles. Festival-goers will also be able to enjoy the festival and collect rewards along the way. Watch any of the festival movies to earn stamps that you can use to redeem exclusive goodies.
