Win tickets to Time Out Film Club's Japanese Film Festival screening
With murder mysteries, manga adaptations, gods, yakuza and ’80s pop stars, the Japanese Film Festival has plenty to delight J-film fans this year. The program ticks many of the boxes when it comes to the things we love about Japanese culture. There's anime, teenage romance, urban alienation, ghosts, samurai, yakuza, kitsch and comedy with a bizarre edge. However, this year’s festival also brings some new perspectives, giving lesser-known stories a moment in the spotlight. One must-see film is the award-winning Melancholic. The blackly funny crime drama portrays a young man working at a bathhouse who witnesses a yakuza execution on the premises. The film won its director, Seiji Tanaka, a Best Director Award (Japanese Cinema) at the Tokyo International Film Festival last year. Luckily for you, we've got 20 double passes a screening of Melancholic on Wednesday November 30, 2019 at 5.30pm. The screening will take place at Melbourne CBD's Capitol Theatre on Swanston Street. All you need to do is enter your details via the link below by November 19. Check out more must-see Japanese Film Festival screenings here. Enter now
