Japanese Avant-Garde and Experimental Film Festival (JAEFF) 2019: Nation is taking place at the Barbican and Close-Up Cinema in London. A full list of events and ticket links can be found on their website. Places for their free Filmmakers’ Workshop event are very limited, so don’t tarry!

What’s New?

Thanks to their drinks partners Kirin and Tengu Sake, and hi-fi suppliers AudioGold, JAEFF are delighted to invite you to their opening and closing night drinks receptions at the Barbican Beech Street bar. There’ll be beer and sake (of course) accompanied by a deep dive into the unmatched record collection of Howard Williams AKA  NTS Radio’s Japan Blues.

Friday’s reception will take place from 21:00 and Sunday’s closing drinks will be served from 20:30. Simply show your ticket for any JAEFF 2019 event to gain entry!
