Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 13th, 2019.

Welcome back to JAFWA, for our first screening in July. We will ease you back in, with our usual program, with no significant surprises, as Previews and other goodness are later this month. Surely SBS World Movies Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July has kept you going, even if it was dubbed into English.

Flicks

Though on the night of Wednesday 10th July, the next channel over SBS Viceland is showing the live action version of “Tokyo Ghoul”.

This is the last week to nominate yourself for the JAFWA elections, for next week is the JAFWA AGM and committee elections! Start finalising your election pitches and how you will overlord it when you get elected to the JAFWA committee. Some of our dear JAFWAites have looked thoughtful when they were offered the chance at Glory (as well as some interesting experience to add to their resumes).

Also, please raise any issues you think need to be discussed at the AGM via the suggestions sheets, and/or e-mail so that the JAFWA committee can add and address the issue properly on the AGM agenda.
