The Toronto Japanese Film Festival will announce the lineup of films for their third annual festival this Thursday, March 27 at their monthly screening (the Japanese Unforgiven remake starring Ken Watanabe). 

However, they have allowed us to scoop their own announcement and share with you, today, most of their lineup. The festival runs from June 12-27 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre here in the heart of Toronto. Many of the films will have North American or Canadian premieres. 

Have a look at the gallery below to see the list of films in this year's lineup. There are a lot of good, good films in there. And stay tuned, because ScreenAnarchy and the TJFF will team up and give away tickets to some of these screenings closer to the festival. 

Go to the festival website for more information

The festival opens with the Canadian premiere of Asahara Yuzo’s A TALE OF SAMURAI COOKING to celebrate UNESCO’s addition of Japanese cuisine to their Intangible Cultural Heritage List.The romantic comedy-drama takes a light-hearted and delicious look at the world of samurai chefs and stars the popular Ueto Aya and Kora Kengo.

    I'm a Japanese-Canadian. I know very little about Japanese culture. I only know just a few simple words of Japanese. Definitely, it's a great opportunity to learn more about the perception of Japenese mentality. Since my late parents hardly mentioned or had an open discussion about what is Japanese culture to me while I was growing up.
