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.

in the exceedingly popular TV series 'Moteki', plus starring in many Sion Sono
films such as 'Be Sure to Share', 'Cold Fish', 'Himizu' and the upcoming 'Land
