The 17th Japanese Film Festival is running across Australia over the coming months and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, previously only shown in Japan and a few other special events in Latin America is one of the headline acts! It will also be one of the first times Battle of Gods will be shown with official English subtitles. This is exciting for the news for the film festival as it also marks the first time the event is going National as opposed to only running in Melbourne. The first stop is in Broome and is running as early as September 17.
Fans of anime can also check out A Boy Called H and Arriety as well as a large selection of other Japanese films. All films will be screened with English subtitles, so don’t let the language barrier scare you off. Check out some international films and you might just be surprised! If you would like more information on the festival such as dates, films and locations or would like to book a ticket, head over to japanesefilmfestival.net. They are also on the lookout for volunteers so give them a hand if you have some free time.
