JFFLA 2023 Theme

JFFLA2023 Theme “ぬくもり(nu-ku-mo-ri)” “When you are with your family, friends, a significant other, or someone you care about, you get a warm ‘feeling’. Sometimes, you can get this feeling from a meaningful place or thing, like a house, a room, or even just words. We at JFFLA2023 want to provide this special feeling through the films selected to be shown at our festival.”

JFFLA2023 のテーマは、 “ぬくもり(nu-ku-mo-ri)” です。
家族、友人、大事な人、大切な人と一緒にいると、温かい『気持ち』が生まれます。 家、部屋、言葉など、意味のある場所や物からもこの感情を感じることがあります。 私たちJFFLA2023は、映画祭で上映するために選ばれた映画を通じて、この特別な感覚をお伝えしたいと考えています。

Should there be any format or scheduling changes due to COVID-19 or something, we will adjust and announce our plans accordingly. 
We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
