After a sold-out screening at the 37th Hawaii International Film Festival and bagging the award for Audience Choice for Best Feature Narrative Film, Singapore-based film production house Bananamana's Jimami Tofu finally makes its debut on home ground.

The foodie-slash-love story is set in the picture-postcard island of Okinawa and follows Ryan, a Singaporean-Chinese chef working in Japan. The film charts his culinary journey, his relationships with a past and present lover and the true meaning of home.

The special movie screening takes place at GV Max at Vivocity on March 28 and presents a photo exhibition featuring photographs of Okinawa, an Okinawan bento taster and a panel discussion with the cast and crew. Plus, we hear you might even stand a chance to win a pair of round-trip tickets to the Japanese prefecture from Singapore on Jetstar airlines. 

Tickets to the screening are priced at $15. Get them here.
