The JFF is a project held by the Japan Foundation in order to promote Japanese films around the world. Running with the slogan ‘Japanese Film Anytime, Anywhere,’ the project was initially launched in 2016 for 10 ASEAN countries and Australia.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s festival is to be held virtually and 20 Japanese films will be screened across two phases.
