JFF School Screenings

JFF (Japanese Film Festival) school screenings are exclusive screenings for school groups as part of annual Japanese Film Festival which runs in major cities around Australia.

School screenings include a fun Japan related quiz before the film, and make for a great excursion. A Unit of Work on the film will be provided to teachers in advance. The films are best suited for high school students.

Screenings in each city will be held 10am – 12:45pm.  (Please be seated by 9.45am and allow plenty of time to purchase snacks.)

The 2018 school screening film was the youth-oriented comedy, MY love STORY!!.

2019 screening details will be announced in July 2019. Stand by for updates via the website and J-Teacher newsletter.

MY love STORY!!

Directed by Hayato Kawai

Comedy | 2015 | 105 mins | Classification: UNCL 12+
* Unclassified 12+: Children below 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult

MY love STORY!! is a heart-warming high school comedy for all ages. Based on a hit comic book series, main character Takeo Goda is a freshman in high school, but his fierce-looking face and a hulking body looks nothing like a high school student. His rugged looks and awkward manner repel girls, but his warmhearted nature and willingness to help others makes him popular with all his classmates!
