Screening on Saturday 29th October 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 29th 2022

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

The month of October draws to an end, though the program at JAFWA starts a two more new regular series – Firstly the second season of “Spy x Family”, and the long requested next season of “Ascendance of a Bookworm”.
“Golden Kamuy” will not be on this week, but we intend to see its return in November. This week enjoy two episode of “Tokyo Revengers”.

Also, we have our monthly member’s draw, and the monthly survey.

Spy x Family Ascendance of a Bookworm

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 (ie this week). 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, and if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. So long as we don’t miss 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.
