The Terracotta Festival

new logo

The Terracotta Festival is now in its fourth year and we aim to be a festival in the true sense of the word, not just a film season. We have parties and a dedicated area we are branding 'Terracotta Café' where other film fans and culture lovers can mingle with each other. Our Distribution company brings quality, entertaining Far East films to the UK by releasing films theatrically and on DVD.


Japanese films to screen at London's TERRACOTTA FESTIVAL 2012

The Terracotta Far East Film Festival will take place from 12th to 15th April 2012 at the Prince Charles Cinema. 


With a stunning line-up of films hand-picked from the

and everything in between, the festival will continue to hold exclusive
Q&As, masterclasses and fabulous parties.

Each year the festival strives to improve on last year
and to discover new talent and fans of Japanese cinema will be able to enjoy an
eclectic mixture of genres; from
controversial director Toshiaki Toyoda (Monsters Club) to quirky
comedy drama featuring renowned actor Koji Yakusho (The Woodsman and the
) and 
legendary animated works of Studio Ghibli.
