“For the 9th edition of EU Film Days, 23 films from 22 EU Member States will be shown over a three-week period starting on Friday 27 May at the National Film Center in Tokyo. There will be two to three screenings each day, excluding Mondays, and each film will be screened twice during the period of the festival. Additionally this year, 17 of the 23 films shown in Tokyo will also be shown in the cities of Kyoto, Hiroshima, Okayama, Yamaguchi, and Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture.
This year’s selection of films, which includes 6 that are being shown for the very first time in Japan, have been chosen in order to exhibit the wide range of film-making talent in the 27-Member State European Union as well as the cultural diversity that the EU maintains. Co-organised by the Delegation of the European Union to Japan, EU Member States’ embassies and cultural institutes in Japan, the National Film Center (NFC) of the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, EU Film Days brings the best of European cinema to audiences in Japan. This unique festival is held as part of EU-Japan Friendship Week, during which a wide range of activities and events are held across Japan celebrating relations between Japan and Europe."
