The Japan Foundation is proud to once again present the Japanese Film Festival Online. This year’s Festival will be held in a record-breaking 27 countries and regions.

In Egypt, we will offer 20 films over a period of two weeks to share the excitement of Japanese cinema with the world. The films are of various genres, including anime, comedy, documentary, drama, action, horror, and classics.

The Festival includes noteworthy films such as We Made a Beautiful Bouquet and Baby Assassins, the film that took Japanese social media by storm (its third installment is scheduled to be released in Japan this fall). Other highlights of the diverse lineup are School Meals Time Graduation and The Zen Diary, both of which showcase Japan’s delicious food culture.
