The Japan Foundation (JF) JFF+ INDEPENDENT CINEMA is a free online streaming program that features 12 Japanese independent films selected by managers from independent theaters, so-called “mini-theaters” throughout Japan. Mini-theaters have nurtured the diversity of the Japanese cinema culture and brought it up to the current state.

All films are streamed online free of charge to the worldwide audience.

The program is complemented by interview videos with directors and actors, and interview articles with managers of the mini-theaters, to bring you closer to the current Japanese cinema culture.
