annual Japanese Film Festival counts on its sponsors, loyal audiences, and partners
to brings the festival to life once a year. Much more than just a series of films
from Japan, it is curated to inspire and to surface the stories its volunteer
curator finds through his time spent connecting the dots.
While the festival
seeks financial support, at times, it is the non-financial aspects that it really
needs. Like a venue, to dedicated volunteers, to partners who can add a complementary
dimension to the festival, there are many ways in which to support the festival.
