The 15th “Japanese Film Festival Nippon Connection” will be held in Frankfurt from June 2nd to 7th, 2015. Mainly Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Theater Willy Praml in der Naxoshalle are the festival centers. Further events will take place at Mal Seh’n Kino, at the German Film Museum, Ausstellungsraum Eulengasse as well as at GDA Wohnstift Frankfurt am Zoo. A new venue will be at the theater Die Käs.
What once began as a small student project has become the biggest festival for Japanese film worldwide. What has remained is the unique and familial atmosphere of the festival, where film fans and devotees of Japanese culture come together once a year. Over the course of six days more than 100 new productions, among them many premieres, will be shown. Numerous filmmakers from Japan will be there when Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Theater Willy Praml in der Naxoshalle will turn into a colorful and inviting festival center. For its anniversary, the Nippon Connection Festival will see the first edition of the Nippon Honor Award, sponsored by Lufthansa.
