Screening on Saturday 12th September 2020

How the year goes so fast. According to the Bureau of Meterology it is now Spring, and JAFWA lifts your heart and soul as the screenings continue.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle. Somehow the JAFWA effort makes them tastier.

Along with our regular program, we include the puntastic preview episode of another anime produced in Japan, but not yet fitted into the JAFWA program, for your consideration. Please enjoy.


As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we have entered the new calendar season, and some Japanese calendars have been listed already, such as here and here. Do you want to be cheered up by 2021?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. And we need to wipe the chairs down before they are stacked away.

Below is the expected program for the evening of Saturday September 12th, 2020.
