Presented by Japan Australia Friendship Association (JAFA) , the AnimeGO! Japan Pop Culture Festival began in 2016 as a film festival showcasing old and new anime films. It has since evolved to encompass all aspects of Japanese pop culture: art, fashion, food, games, plus more.
The AnimeGO! Japan Pop Culture Festival mission is to showcase cultural elements of Japan with a pop culture twist. Key aspects of Japanese Pop Culture include anime, manga, food, music and fashion- to build a better understanding of Japanese culture for our audience and changing the common misconceptions of what Japan can offer.
This is done by moving away from the traditional ‘convention’ format and recreating the matsuri atmosphere from Japan. Following in the steps of its sister event, Kodomo no Hi Japan Festival , the aim is to provide a range of authentic Japanese festival food and activities.
