The Japan Foundation gives these films a much-needed platform Japanese film festival online. The third edition, which started on June 5 and runs until July 3, presents a diverse lineup, from commercial hits to restored classics (such as Keisuke Kinoshita’s 1954 classroom drama ‘Twenty-Four Eyes’ and Eiichi Yamamoto’s anime ‘Kimba the White’ from 1966. Lion”).

Viewers in a record 27 countries and regions will be able to watch – but unfortunately not in Japan.
