Japanese Films & Festival


The Japan Film Festival of San Francisco and J-POP Summit begin this weekend (that’s tomorrow!), so we thought you might want to get in the mood by watching some Japanese films courtesy of Gleeson Library.


Supplement your festival viewing pleasures with streaming Japanese independent films straight from the library’s web site in our new database Asian Films Online:

Asian Film Online offers a view of Asian culture as seen through the lens of the independent Asian filmmaker. Through a selection of hundreds of narrative feature films, documentaries and shorts curated by film scholars and critics, the collection offers highly relevant perspectives and insights onto themes relevant across Asia.

If that whets your desire for more, take a look at all our streaming video services, or do an author search with a director’s name in our catalog, Ignacio.

Find something good? Tell us about it in the comments!
