BL Metamorphosis

Thursday 9th March 2023

A heart-warming film about two lonely women with a huge age gap between them and from different cultural backgrounds, who come together to find friendship and a new sense of self.


Thursday 2nd March 2023

Based on the novel by KOSHIGAYA Osamu, this charming coming-of-age film is set in the northern landscapes of Japan and skilfully mixes hidden gems of the area and its heritage with cinematic human drama.

Blue Thermal

Thursday 23rd February 2023

The film is like a ‘blue thermal’ – an updraft that occurs under a blue sky which pushes a glider higher. This beautiful work with its spectacular depiction of the sky captures the ever-moving emotion of Tamaki tenderly.

Hold Me Back

Thursday 16th February 2023

Gaining sympathy from the large singles community both inside and outside of Japan, this award-winning film handles the hidden loneliness of a young woman in Japanese contemporary society with a humorous tone.
