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.
