Grüezi mitenand, konnichiwa!

Due to the large impact of COVID-19, we had to take the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival.
We are truly sad to announce the news.
Japan has declared a state of emergency and the situation is rapidly changing in my home town of Tokyo, too.
Just like many of you, I am not sure when I can meet my family in Japan again in person – not digitally.
It is a very difficult time for all of us but the GINMAKU team is trying to keep our heads up.
We will continue to work for GINMAKU 2021 every day until this crisis is over so that we can all meet at the cinema next year.

The crisis has affected almost all of our festival partners.
They are not giving up, either, and are carrying on with their passion during these severe times.
These Japan related restaurants, shops and companies in Switzerland are looking forward to your orders and support:

Food and drinks
Yoojis (Delivery and take out)
Sato (Online sake shop)
KABUKI Dressing – akari taste (Online shop, Coop, Globus, etc.)
Sala of Tokyo (Voucher: info(at)sala-of-tokyo.ch)
IZ Exclusive Japanese Tableware (Online shop)
