The annual Japanese Film Festival launched at the Mercury Cinema on Friday night with an enthusiastic crowd of fans keen to toast the Festival’s 20th anniversary and enjoy the opening night film, What a Wonderful Family! which will screen again on 21 October.
The Festival features a selection of great Japanese films, ranging from comedies to thrillers, animation and more and is running exclusively in Adelaide at the Mercury Cinema until 30 October 2016. Most of the movies will only screen once, so we’ve had a sneak preview of five of the films. Read our reviews here then enjoy our photos of the opening night party below.
