Japan Film Festival

November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Nikka Yuko and the Consulate-General of Japan in Calgary have worked together to bring you a Japan Film Festival on Friday, November 10, and the best part is that it’s FREE!

There will be two showings on November 10.

  • The first one is called Dad’s Lunchbox and will have a start time of 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. This film was inspired by the real-life story of a Japanese father who, for the three years his daughter spent at high school, prepared daily bento lunch boxes for her, leading to delicious, interesting, or offbeat creations. In all cases, he put an effort into equipping his daughter with sustenance for school.
  • The second film is called Bento Harassment and will have a start time of 3:00 PM. Wishing to open up another line of communication with her rebellious teenage daughter, in the name of light-hearted revenge, single mother Kaori begins creating embarrassingly sweet messages in her child’s lunchbox meals. Will it work?

While there is no charge for this film festival, tickets still need to be secured to reserve your seat.

Refreshments are also available to purchase from Cleo’s Café.

Tickets will be released on October 31, and with each online reservation, you’re entered to win a reusable bento box set provided by the Consulate-General of Japan in Calgary.
