It's been a wild ride of films, filmmakers, very happy audiences and great new friendships this past weekend at the 2nd annual Shinsedai Cinema Festival. The event wouldn't have happened at all without the kind cooperation and hours of hard work put in by the fine folks at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre here in Toronto. Now the JCCC is going to be following up this great fest with a fabulous Toronto Premiere of one af contemporary Japanese cinema's biggest buzz films.
On August 21st at 7:00PM the JCCC and the Canada Japan Society will be presenting the Toronto Premiere of Sion Sono's 4-hour genre-defying epic "Love Exposure" in their beautiful Kobayashi Hall (the same amazing screening venue for the Shinsedai Cinema Festival). Why would you pass up the chance to see the film that topped not only the Midnight Eye writers poll for best film of 2009 but also Midnight Eye's 2009 reader's poll on the big screen... and when I say big screen I mean BIG screen.
Tickets are only $10.00, so to get detailos on "Love Exposure" at the JCCC click here and start getting geared up for next month's premiere!
