Waiting List

If any of the above screenings are shown as fully booked, it may still be possible to register for the waiting list. Please email info@jpf.org.uk with your details and the screening you would like to register for.


This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, a war which ended in Japan in August 1945. Since then traces of the war have been prevalent in the arts of Japan right through to today, and cinema is by no means an exception.

Reflecting on life back then, the Japan Foundation has put together a selection of rarely screened films set before, during and after the Second World War, produced by filmmakers, such as Kazuo Kuroki and Yoji Yamada, who strived to depict the experiences of those directly affected by the conflict in different ways.


These screenings are all free to attend but booking is essential. Please include your contact details at the top of the booking page, and then complete the details of each attendee for all tickets.

Please note that it is currently only possible to book 2 tickets for each screening at a time. Should you require more, please complete the booking process again for any additional tickets.


On this occasion the Japan Foundation would like to encourage younger audience members to attend these screenings. If you, or a member of your party, are aged 25 or under, please tick the corresponding box when completing your booking. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
