COMPETITION: Win a set of Japanese Films on DVD
Japan Centre has teamed up with Third Window Films again, this time to give you guys a chance of winning a DVD with three superb films from contemporary Japanese Director Miki Satoshi.
This limited edition box set has been specially created to coincide with the UK release of his quirky comedy ‘Adrift in Tokyo’.
The ‘Miki Satoshi Collection’ set includes 3 of his hit best titles: ‘Turtles are Surprisingly Fast Swimmers’, ‘Instant Swamp’ and ‘Adrift in Tokyo’. All three are going straight to DVD and won’t be available to see at UK cinemas, so this is a great opportunity to see some fun Japanese films.
