The annual Japanese Film Festival returns with a total of 37 screenings at the National Museum of Singapore. This year’s festival will be screened in two periods – the first part will run from July 9 to 19 while the second part from July 20 to August 8.


The retrospective of films by Okamoto Kihachi, one of the leading exponents of jidai-geki 時代劇, is the theme for this year’s festival, featuring famous classics such as Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo, Kill!, Judo Saga and Samurai Assassin. There will also be an additional mystery screening on 17 July, which the film title will not be revealed until the actual day. All the films in the retrospective will be screened on 35mm, a rarity with today’s digital cinema.


The22nd edition of the festival in Singapore is organised by the Japan Creative Centre (JCC), in collaboration with the Singapore Film Society, the Japan Foundation and the National Museum of Singapore.
