The Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh together with the Japanese Studies department at the University of Edinburgh are delighted to welcome you to a free Japanese Film Festival at 50 George Square, University of Edinburgh.
Each Friday from the 30th of January to 20th February, we will be offering a free screening of a different contemporary Japanese film, accompanied by a short explanatory talk from a series of relevant speakers including members of the Japanese Department.
Please join us on Friday 13th February for our screening of 2011 film, Hankyu Railway: A 15-minute miracle
Directed by Yoshishige Miyake
At first glance, totally unconnected lives... but on the train, their paths intersect and emotions converge, spinning a miraculous story of love. Anything can happen, even on a 15 minute train ride...
Doors open at 6pm and the introductory talk and film will start at 6.30pm. Simple refreshments will be served after the screening.
This is a free event that is open to all. However, there is a seating limit in the venue, so we would be grateful if you could book your place in advance through EventBrite.
We will not be issuing paper tickets, but please check in at the reception on the night.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
