Eiga Sai is organized by Japan Foundation Manila (JFM) in cooperation with the Embassy of Japan, Shangri-La Plaza Mall and the Film Development Council of the Philippines. This event is to celebrate the Philippine-Japan Friendship Month. This year’s movie theme is about Family. Which is a perfect theme because of the recent happenings in both the Philippines and Japan. The festival features 16 contemporary movies directed by acclaimed international and award-winning directors of Japan.

Last week’s Eiga Sai in Manila was very successful. Quoting JFM’s post on their official website; “… the Eiga Sai had an enthusiastic film audience of approximately 11,000 – it was indeed a record-breaking event! ” And now the film festival is to storm Visayas (Cebu) and Mindanao (Davao).For those who are in Mindanao, Eiga Sai will be at  FDCP Cinematheque, Davao City starting July 29 to August 3. And below is the schedule for Cebu:

AUGUST 6 (WEDNESDAY)
Homeland (家路) 7:00 pm

AUGUST 7 (THURSDAY)
Wolf Children (おおかみこどもの雨と雪) 7:00 pm

AUGUST 8 (FRIDAY)

The opening film: Homeland was an official selection of the Panorama section in the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, directed by: Nao Kubota  And I personally, certainly is excited to watch “Like Father, Like Son” which is a  2014 Festival de Cannes Jury Prize awardee.  The movie’s director, Hirokazu Kore-eda is a globally acclaimed director of movies that received praises all over the world.

All films are with  English subtitles, so there’s no need to worry for those who can’t speak and understand Japanese… like me. 😉
