The Lincoln Festival of Japanese Culture is a celebration showcasing Japanese film, music, art, food and much more. Lincoln based Blueprint: Film Foundation are organising and putting on the event with additional funding from the Japan Society and Lincoln BIG to celebrate Japanese Culture and share it with the Lincolnshire community.


The main event is being held on the 27th January at ‘The Venue’ in Bishop Grosseteste University College and will host the screening of our 2 films, anime classic 'Akira' and Shohei Imamura's groundbreaking 'Pigs and Battleships' (tickets now available) alongside traditional Japanese live music, martial arts demonstrations, art, food and drink. The screening of 'Pigs and Battleships', which will be closing the event will also be accompanied by a talk from acclaimed Japanese cinema expert, Jasper Sharp.


In the week leading up to the Festival there will be an exhibition of Japanese inspired art from local Japanese artist Kaoru Shimada. The exhibition will be held at Cafe Portico, on the ground floor of The Terrace, Lincoln.
