This year, the festival opens with the North American premiere of KAWAI Hayato’s DON’T LOSE YOUR HEAD! (身代わり忠臣蔵), a lavish comic retelling of the famous tale of the 47 Ronin featuring a star-studded cast. The festival closes with the Canadian premiere of MIHARA Mitsuhiro’s heart-warming foodie flick TAKANO TOFU (高野豆腐店の春), for which we are a proud Screening Sponsor.

We are also a Screening Sponsor of STAY MUM (かくしごと) starring Anne Watanabe.

All films are presented in Japanese with English subtitles.
