Eiga Sai 2011

Eiga Sai. A film festival I’ve been dying to see each year. It showcases the artistry and the uniqueness of Japanese films. I’ve been seeing this I think ever since I was in high school. Oh, those were the days. And yet, I feel like a child again when I watch Japanese films.

The 13th Eiga Sai Japanese Film Festival will be held from July to August this year at selected venues nationwide. This event is organized by the Japan Foundation Manila together with the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, The Shangri-La Plaza Corporation, and The UP Film Institute.

As you can see, the featured movie – Departures, is not shown in Cebu. A disappointment indeed. But it’s okay, it’s okay. I’ll be downloading it anyway.

Here is where you can see the synopsis of the films to be shown.

Admission is free. All I can say is that the best things in life are indeed free.

So let’s go and watch Eiga Sai. Experience the culture of Japan through watching this film festival.

I ❤ JAPAN. :)))
