FREE 17th Eiga Sai Film Festival 2015 From July 9 - Aug 23 At EDSA Shangri-La Plaza, Davao, Cebu And UP Film Theater

Japan is included in my travel bucket list but for now it is still on hold as I plan to visit no-visa Asian countries first.  Anyway my desire to know this country more is always just a film away so that is fine. Speaking of, an email just popped out from Japan Foundation Manila sending me an  exclusive invite for the Special Press Screening of 17th Eiga Sai Japan Film Festival 2015. I remember few years ago I would line up at least an hour just to watch the movies here!  I guess all of those tiring moments are being paid back since this is the second time I get another invite like this. The one that just concluded few weeks ago is the French Film Festival.

To give back as well, I would like to share  all the details about the 17th Eiga Sai Japan Film Festival 2015. This year's theme is “Tasteful Japan” featuring the flavourful culinary world of Japan and the contemporary films released in Japan in 2014. I love Japanese cuisine so I just couldn't imagine how will literally my mouth water when I watch these!

And just so you know I am just a dozen cartwheel away from EDSA Shangrila Cineplex so this is never a problem to me so long as I don't have work.

List of screening venues: 
Shang Cineplex Cinema 2 (July 9 to 19) 
FDCP Cinematheque, Davao (July 14 to 19) 
Abreeza Mall Cinema, Davao (July 24 to 26)
