Japanese Film Festival Classics Brisbane

Festivals and Celebrations

18 Jan 2021 to 27 Jan 2021 Annual Event

In 2021, The Japanese Film Festival (JFF) returns to cinemas in Brisbane (8-27 Jan) with a subversive FREE Classics program exploring Provocation and Disruption: Radical Japanese Filmmaking from the 1960s to the 2000s.

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.
