MANILA, Philippines - Easily one of the most anticipated every year, the Eiga Sai Japanese Film Festival will once again feature films that embody Japan's history and culture that, though the language may vary, has the ability to speak through its very real stories that speak of family, love, pain, and hope.

Hosted once again by Japan Foundation Manila in cooperation with the Embassy of Japan, top lifestyle hub Shangri-La Plaza, and the Film Development Council of the Philippines, Eiga Sai will be available for free to the public from July 4 to 14, at Cinema 2 of the Shang Cineplex.

Seats are on a first-come, first served basis. Tickets are released  30 minutes before the screening. Film ratings may be confirmed at the ticket office. For inquiries, contact 370-2597 or 370-2598 or log on to www.shangrila-plaza.com. Add Shangri-La Plaza on Facebook: shangrilaplazaofficialfanpage.

The film fest kicks off with the screening of "About Her Brother", filmmaker Yamada Yoji’s homage to legendary director Ichikawa Kon's film of the same title. The movie presents a heartwarming story of the bond between a hard-working older sister Koharu and her long lost younger brother Tetsuro.
