14th Nippon Connection Film Festival

From May 27 to June 1, 2014 the 14th Japanese Film Festival Nippon Connection will take place in Frankfurt am Main, Germany! Welcome to six days of Japanese cinema and Japanese culture: The crazy comedy FUKUCHAN OF FUKUFUKU FLATS by Yosuke FUJITA, art house cinema by Shinji AOYAMA (BACKWATER), a moving family drama by Hirokazu KOREEDA (LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON), Sang-il LEE’s remake UNFORGIVEN of Clint Eastwood’s western of the same title, and masterpieces by Ko NAKAHIRA from the 1950s and 1960s in the NIPPON RETRO are only a few of this year’s cinematic highlights. Additionally you can experience Japanese culture in numerous workshops, lectures, concerts and other events. Be it traditional or modern – the festival has something to offer for everyone!

For the second time, the festival center will be the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Theater Willy Praml in der Naxoshalle. Other locations are the German Film Museum, the Mal Seh’n cinema and the exhibition room Eulengasse.

The complete program will be announced in the beginning of May. Tickets for all films and events are available from May 2, 2014 at the ticket agencies and here on our website. You can’t wait for the festival to begin? Then check out our video documentation of the festival in 2013 and get a first glimpse of the special Nippon Connection atmosphere.

Support the festival and enjoy several exclusive advantages as a sustaining member of the non-profit association Nippon Connection e.V.! The Nippon Connection festival has considerably grown in the past 14 years, yet it is still organized by a volunteer team and can only be realized through donations and sponsorships.
