Fresh Perspectives

This year at JFF 2017, expect to find old tales with new tricks and classic plots with refreshing stories. Fresh faces will grace the silver screen, alongside veterans who’ll shock, delight, and melt hearts. And for those who just want good ol’ Japanese cinema, don’t worry—we’re still the same JFF. Whether it’s slice of life drama or absurdist manga comedy, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got something for everybody.
