Japan Foundation

We’re excited to announce that the Japan Foundation London is now part of Terracotta Far East Film Festival as an official festival sponsor.

The Japan Foundation was established in 1972 by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to promote cultural exchange between Japan and the rest of the world, and to provide financial support for a range of international cultural exchange programmes.

The Japan Foundation works principally in arts and culture, in Japanese language education, and in Japanese studies. In the UK, the Japan Foundation London coordinates cultural programmes, grants support to projects, and organises lectures, workshops, seminars, courses, exhibitions and performances. You can find out about its rich programme of events here.

This year, we’re delighted to have four brilliant Japanese films in our line-up, and to be welcoming three special guests from Japan for Q&As and masterclasses. Our 2014 Japanese films are as follows:

Snow White Murder Case (Saturday, May 31 at 20:15)
Lesson of Evil (Saturday, May 31 as part of the Terror Cotta All-Nighter from 22:40 onwards)
Be My Baby (Sunday, June 1 at 12:15)
Judge! – Closing Film (Sunday, June 1 at 17:25)

A huge thanks to The Japan Foundation London for supporting our festival!
