BEST OF THE TORONTO JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL (JULY)

As we await the post-crisis reopening and the commencement of our rescheduled TJFF 2020 in October, we thought it appropriate to use Japanese film to lift everyone’s spirits at this very confusing time. We are delighted to announce a special series representing some of the most popular – and light-hearted – films from the past 8 years of festivals and film programming.

These films (with subtitles) are not available domestically so it is a special treat and a rare opportunity to see them. Please enjoy!
