The Japanese Film Festival 2020

NOTE: This page will be updated periodically.

The annual Japanese Film Festival (JFF) is returning in November and is set to light up selected Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) nationwide, showcasing 10 titles ranging from a variety of genres – drama, comedy, action and animation, highlighting the colours of Japan through cinema. One of the titles, “One Summer Story” will be premiering in Malaysia prior to the release in Japan (expected release in 2021).

JFF 2020 will be the first Film Festival to be launched at GSC since the commencement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) back in March earlier this year.

Audience will also get special gifts by collecting stamps every time they watch a film at JFF.

All films are presented in Japanese with English subtitles.
