Launched back in 1983, the film fest is one of the longest-running film events in Singapore. It showcases a range of genres, including mystery, horror, documentaries, Japanese currents, and more.
Occasionally, directors and other celebrities in Japanese films make their way to Singapore to attend the festival.
The Japanese Film Festival movies are shown at different times throughout the festival. Venues change yearly, with Shaw Theatres LIDO on Orchard Road being the main venue for the festival, with *SCAPE and The Projector showing a range of short films and classics.
