Who wants FREE MOVIES? I do. And this weekend, we are in for a treat as the 21st Eigasai Japanese Film Festival is in Bacolod City!
The Eigasai Japanese Film Festival
The Japanese Film Festival (JFF), widely known as well as appreciated in the Philippines as Eigasai Japanese Film Festival, is once again happening. This movie event is presented and run by the Japan Foundation, Manila and held annually from July to August. The free movie screenings in the key cities in the Philippines is part of the celebration of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Month.
Launched in 1997, the JFF has grown to become one of the largest and popular film festivals in the Philippines. It attracts over 25,000 audiences every year, as the festival showcases a vast variety of cinematic delights, ranging from drama, anime, mystery, to popular films.
Furthermore, Eigasai also brings guests from Japan for special talks and discussions around the country.
The year 2018 marks the 21st anniversary of Eigasai as an arts and cultural exchange program. With this, the organizers will showcase award-winning Japanese films at the SM Cinema Bacolod, from August 9-12, 2018. Yep! That’s four whole days of free movies!
Admission is Free
Admission to the all the movies screened for Eigasai is totally FREE. So that means, it is on a first-come, first-serve basis. A total of 15 participating films will be screened. Please go to the SM Cinema Bacolod much earlier than the screening time to secure your free movie tickets.
