Japan Filmfest Hamburg

Business relations between Hamburg and Japan have been fruitful and prosperous for decades. As a result, a great many Japanese companies have settled in the Hanseatic city. However, not only economically but also culturally, the land of the rising sun has lots to offer. Japan Filmfest sets out to provide an overview of the many different genres of Japanese film, far exceeding the ever-present animes. From documentaries to short films and feature films of all genres, the five-day festival knows no stylistic boundaries. What’s more, films screened during Japan Filmfest are often German, European or even World premieres, adding an exclusive air to the event. Films are usually in Japanese with English subtitles (if indicated as “OmeU”).
