12th Japanese Film Festival Nippon Connection
From May 2nd to 6th, 2012, we invite you to experience the various facets of Japanese culture in a program that tries to reject ordinary standards. Many of our 142 films are presented as international premieres in Frankfurt am Main and can be watched outside of Japan only at our screenings. Still we continue to offer workshops, parties, exhibitions, lectures, performances, and much more that attracts our visitors besides cinema. Nippon Connection doesn’t seek to guide your view but wants to diffuse it and avoid fixed stereotypes in order to foster openness, interest and tolerance. We invite you to join us and watch beyond the screen, to explore and to celebrate a vivid exchange of cultures both with us and with many guests from Japan - because this is what NIPPON CONNECTION means to us.
