Japanese Film Festival 2023
We are delighted to once again be hosting the Japanese Film Festival here at Triskel. It is always a great opportunity to watch memorable films and learn something new about a different culture. This year is no different. Two films will be screened on Saturday 15th April: the dystopian drama Plan 75 and the animated fantasy adventure Suzume. The Gate Cinema will also be hosting some screenings. The Japanese Film Festival is co-organised by the Embassy of Japan, access>CINEMA and the Ireland Japan Association.
