Free Streaming of Japanese Independent Films Online 

Starting 1 August 2023, the Japan Foundation will launch a special program called JFF+ Independent Cinema 2023, a specially curated showcase of 12 independent Japanese films. The films will be available to stream for free online at the JFF+ website, 

The lineup includes films recommended by independent mini theaters throughout Japan, as well as by international film critics and film festival directors. The participating independent mini theaters hold a special role within the community, from Cinema Iris in Hokkaido to the Sakurazaka Theater in Okinawa. The program aims to shed light on the independent mini theaters that support the cinema culture of Japan, and together these will introduce the current state of cinema culture and regional culture in Japan from multiple angles. 

This project is a continuation of the streaming project JFF+ Independent Cinema carried out from December to June of this year. The previous lineup of films was accessed from over 150 countries and regions around the world, including the Philippines, the U.S., Australia, and Mexico, attracting interest from viewers from a wide range of ages. The project received a great response, with many positive comments received from Japanese film fans from all over the world.
