Japanese Film Festival 2010 Arrives in Town
28 Oct 2010 :
'Fish Story'
The Japanese Film Festival will launch in Cork City, on Friday October 29th before touring Limerick, Galway and Dublin throughout November. As with the festival’s two previous installments, the event is co-organised by the Embassy of Japan, access>CINEMA and the Ireland Japan Association.

Highlights in this year’s programme include the genre-bending ‘Fish Story’, which is set in five different time periods and incorporates such disparate subjects as punk music, plagiarism, and impending Armageddon; the classroom drama ‘Confessions’, which explores the dire consequence of unchecked bullying, and ‘The Sky Crawlers’ (directed by Mamoru Oshii, whose ‘Ghost in The Shell’ featured in last year’s Festival) which depicts a world where war has become a company sponsored reality game. The 2010 festival will also offer a rare opportunity to see the invigorating ‘Ping Pong’, a modern classic of Japanese cinema, back on the big screen where it belongs.

The Japanese Film Festival will be based in the cinemobile in UCC, Cork from the 29th to the 31st of October, after which it will be based in the Campus screening room of UL, Limerick on November 1st and 2nd. Following this the Cinemobile will move to Galway’s Waterside area from the 5th to the 7th of November whereby it will reach its final destination of Dublin’s Cineworld from the 12th to the 14th of November.

The Japanese Film Festival aims to foster a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and society among Irish citizens and to strengthen the cultural ties between the two countries. As such there will be a number of special cultural events at certain venues, for more information about these visit www.accesscinema.ie.
