Screening on Saturday 23rd October 2021

Screening on the evening of October 23rd 2021

Welcome to another wonderful week of JAFWA in the wonderful month of October. Have you booked interest in JAFWA’s end of year Dinner? Time is passing quickly, and we will need to know how many to book for.
Also, not directly JAFWA related, tickets are selling fast for the Japanese Film Festival. Don’t miss out.

This week we are again showing 3 preview episodes to overwhelm you. You seemed to enjoy it so much last week (I am inisiting I heard cries of adulation, not cries of pain). This does mean squashing the regular JAFWA program around a bit, so we hope you don’t mind if a few of the regular JAFWA titles are not seen this week. This week won’t have a quasi-horror theme, so you will have to prepare for Halloween on your own.
