The Japanese Film Festival Online returns for its 3rd edition from 5 June - 3 July 2024, offering a dynamic line-up of Japanese cinema and television series, free for streaming right across Australia. 

Presented by the Japan Foundation, this year’s festival program showcases a diverse selection of 23 films and 2 TV dramas spanning 20 episodes, as well as a selection of 4 new Japanese horror shorts that premiered at the inaugural Horror Film Competition in Japan in 2023. 

Audiences from 27 countries can enjoy these works, with subtitles available in up to 16 languages.

“JFF Online 2024 is not just a film festival; it's a cultural bridge connecting fans of Japanese cinema across the globe,” said Manisay Oudomvilay from The Japan Foundation, Sydney. “From the comforts of your home, you can traverse a wide array of genres – from heartfelt dramas and engaging documentaries to captivating anime stories. This festival celebrates the breadth and diversity of Japanese storytelling.”

This year's festival presents a curated selection of films that seamlessly bridge the past and present, spanning from classics of 1954 to the latest releases of 2023. The diverse line-up includes a broad spectrum of themes and narratives – from LGBTQIA+ stories and intricate family dramas to exhilarating adaptations of beloved Japanese manga. 

“Our line-up includes films that challenge the norms, explore deep human connections and celebrate the artistry of both seasoned and emerging Japanese filmmakers. We invite cinema lovers and Japanophiles alike from around the world to join us in this unique virtual celebration of Japanese cinematic artistry,” said Manisay.
