Japanese Film Festival Classics

Festivals and Celebrations

5 Dec 2020 to 6 Dec 2020 Annual Event

Radical Japanese Filmmaking from the 1960s to the 2000s, a FREE Classics program.

From revolutionary Japanese New Wave cinema to surrealist psychedelic expressions and experimental horror, the program features boundary-shattering masterpieces from avant-garde Japanese auteurs.

Highlights include award-winning horror films – Shinya Tsukamoto’s Fantafestival Best Film winning cyberpunk classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man, a horrific, visceral story of revenge that explores the relationship between humanity and technology; and Nobuhiko Ōbayashi’s Blue Ribbon Best New Director winning experimental horror film House, about six school girls’ deadly visit to a supernatural mansion with a proclivity for devouring humans.

The Classics program is free admission. Visit the website for ticketing details.
