As part of introducing and promoting Japanese culture, society and way of life to the people of Nepal, the Embassy of Japan is organizing a three-day Japanese Film Festival in Kathmandu from January 24 -26.
Similarly, a one-day film festival is also being organized in Pokhara on February 1.
"Through this film festival, the audience may find differences between Nepalese lifestyle or ways of thinking, and Japanese ways, but they may also find similarities. It is hoped that the film festival will increase the understanding Nepalese people have of Japan and its culture, and in turn lead to the continued development of our friendly relations," the Embassy said in a statement.
Entrance to the movie shows is free for all on a first-come-first-served basis.
The films will be screened with English subtitles and the screening schedule of the film festival is as follows:-
