Kurosawa at UPFI Film Center this week!

A grand total of 21 titles will each have a screening for the UP Film Institute engagement of the Japan Foundation’s Kurosawa Film Festival beginning this Wednesday 22 September 2010 until the end of the month. Admission is free. Venue is the 800-seat Cine Adarna of the UPFI Film Center along Magsaysay Avenue in UP Diliman.

Featured films are all shown in original 35mm print. The festival marks the birth centenary of legendary Japanese director Akira Kurosawa.

The UP Film Institute takes the occasion to acknowledge the generosity of the Government of Japan for the Cultural Grant Aid the country’s premier state university received in the form of audio visual equipment for the benefit of UP Film Institute’s screenings, classes, workshops and other cultural events. The grant has been facilitated through the assistance of Japan Information and Culture Center of the Embassy of Japan.
