BAPFF 2016 Dates announced!

We are excited to announce that BAPFF 2016 will take over Brisbane screens from 23 November – 4 December!

In 2016, BAPFF will offer more than 80 features and documentaries. Opening and Closing Night films along with a selection of the program will be on sale in October, with the complete program launched early November.

We recently announced a special Japanese retrospective as part of the festival program. The retrospective pays tribute to Setsuko Hara, who passed away in 2015. The shining star of the golden era of post-war Japanese cinema, Setsuko Hara is best remembered for her performance in master filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story, a recognised masterpiece frequently regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.

The retrospective also honours the formidable performances by two other celebrated Japanese actresses, Hideko Takamine and Kinuyo Tanaka, who both contributed tremendously to the triumph of classic Japanese cinema.
