Our friend film festival, Boston Japan FF, will be held online this year

The Boston Japan Film Festival and New York Japan CineFest have been collaborating since 2015. This year, we are presenting a short film, “Nourishing Japan,” directed by Alexis Agliano Sanborn at BJFF 2020. Please see the details below.


The Boston Japan Film Festival (BJFF) is aimed at introducing cinema and other elements of Japanese culture to audiences. Its mission is to strengthen cultural understanding through the provocative nature of the film, and help sustain the ongoing and dynamic relationship between Japan and the City of Boston.

Due to the pandemic this year, the Boston Japan Film Festival is going online as the eve of Japan Festival Boston.
Registration is required in advance.
**Registrants will get a link via email to the Livestream an hour before the event, at December 5th at 7pm EST.
