Unforgettable: Memories, Times and Reflections in Japanese Cinema


The UK’s largest festival of Japanese cinema, the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme (JFTFP24), returns to Firstsite with its biggest showcase ever!


The JFTFP24 delves into Japanese cinema to explore how memories are employed in the cinematic voices of Japanese filmmakers, from films where memories are a focal point to works where they play a subliminal role in driving or affecting people’s minds and behaviour.
