Japanese Film Festival Sydney 2020 Dates, Program, Tickets & Prices

Gather up your friends and experience the uniqueness of Japanese film. The Japanese Film Festival in Sydney is part of the JFF Asia-Pacific Platform initiated by The Japan Foundation, with the organisation supporting and growing interest in Japanese films and cinema culture throughout Australia. The festival will also travel to Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

All films are played in their native language with English subtitles – unless otherwise specified. Festival tickets can be purchased online or at the box office  – but get in quick as many sessions will sell out!

If you would like to experience a number of different films during the festival, multi-ticket passes are available. You can purchase a book of 5, 10 or 20 passes, which are valid for one person during the festival.

There will not only be adult films screening during the festival but also a number of child-friendly films. Check the classification before purchasing your ticket.

You can get to Event Cinemas George Street by train or car. If coming by car, parking is located behind the Cinema in Kent Street. If coming by train, catch a train to Town Hall Station.
