Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 22nd 2022

A reminder that the Japanese Film Festival is upon us. Book tickets early or risk missing out

The month of October still has an extra change to the program at JAFWA, in the form of a cutting-edge devilishly popular preview episode, and a special to whet your appetite for the “Dr Stone” 3rd series expected in 2023.
Two more new regular series will start the week after.
And don’t be sad about the second series of “Golden Kamuy” this week, for we will see its return in November.

Dr Stone Chainsaw Man

Don’t forget that we have gone back to our normal 5:15PM start.

Japanese Calendars

It is that time of year again – when Japanese calendars for 2023 are available order. The JAFWA MC is personally taking orders up till the end of October. I have received an order already, and I will probably fulfill the order from here. It is early yet, so not all of the calendars have been listed so far. The link I gave pointed to only Anime calendars, but the left menu shows other categories if you are interested.
This site may be slightly more up-to-date in titles being listed.

The Australian dollar is not buying much these days, but probably more than last year, but if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. We have probably missed the pre-order period.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.
