This festival is dedicated to supporting and promoting filmmaking in Japan and Japanese culture and Japanese filmmakers globally. 



The first year of Arizona Japanese Film Festival brings the best of a broad selection of Japanese cinema to Arizona in order to draw greater recognition of filmmakers, and to strengthen the ties between Arizona and Japan. By showing Japanese films, we aim to support and deepen the understanding of our cultures through the love and joy of movies.

All films that participate in the Festival will have a unique chance to showcase their Japanese films to Arizona, through the exposure and  media attention we will create at this festival.

Arizona Japanese Film Festival is organized by the Japanese Culture Club of Arizona (JCCA), a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization.

Our Festival is supported by patrons from the Japanese communities, JBAA (Japanese Business Association of Arizona), Japanese Culture Club of Arizona and focuses on people who love cinema, especially foreign and independent films.
