July is the Philippines-Japan Friendship Month. In line with this celebration, the Japan Foundation, Manila will showcase their selected movies on the much anticipated Eiga Sai (Japanese FIlm Festival). The said festival will feature full-length Japanese feature films / documentaries and other culturally enriching visual presentations with English sub-titles.
Eiga Sai will be shown at Shang Cineplex Cinema 2 from July 4 to 14. FREE ADMISSION and that is why you need to be early when claiming a ticket. People will flock in the cinema 1 hour earlier before each film. Better be early on the venue to catch the film you want to see. But if you’re not lucky enough or not in the metro, there are other venues and screening schedule.
- Abreeza, Ayala and FDCP Cinematheque, Davao City (July 19 to 28)
- Ayala Center Cinema 4, Cebu City (August 7 to 11)
