Want to see Yuki Tanada’s The Cowards Who Looked to the Sky? Of course you do! So why not see it for free? Enter Japan Culture NYC’s trivia contest for a chance to win a pair of tickets to Saturday’s screening of the film.
As you enjoy your celebrations and grillings and fireworks this holiday, we understand that some of you might be fretting, “Why am I reveling in these festivities when I could be buying tickets to Japan Cuts at the box office or over the phone?” Well, I’m glad to inform you that you need not worry; we are closed through the weekend, so those aren’t even options! All normal operations will pick up again on Monday.
Have a great 4th of July, and we’ll see you at Japan Cuts!
To those looking forward to AKB48 Documentary: No Flower Without Rain, we regret to say that sudden licensing issues forced us to switch the film with AKB48 Documentary: Show Must Go On, the preceding film in the series. We hope this isn’t too drastic a change for those of you who are fans of the group and were excited to get a glimpse into their day-to-day lives.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve teamed up with the wonderful people at Twitch to set up a little raffle.

There are two sorts of people in this world: those who would be hopelessly intrigued by the above image and those who would be repelled. If you happen to be one of those people from the latter category, we probably can’t be friends. On the other hand, if you feel that you absolutely must know more about what’s going on up there, come see Shunichiro Miki’s latest masterpiece of madness,The Warped Forest, and get some answers*.
*There won’t actually be any answers, just more weirdness, but hey, who want answers when you can have weirdness, right?
We know what you’re thinking: “Oh man, all of these movies look amazing, but how can I gauge the style and atmosphere of each film so I know what I’m getting?” Well, fret no more, because we are conveniently compiling the trailers for all our films right on our YouTube page! Be sure to subscribe, because we’re adding more every day, and they’re all properly subtitled.
