FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London – Tuesday 17th July 2012

MAIN FESTIVAL DATES ANNOUNCED FOR THE 3RD ZIPANGU FEST

Zipangu Fest, the UK's premier cross-cultural showcase of Japanese cinema, is back for its third year.

With a host of uncompromising, challenging and pertinent works, featuring the finest selection of recent features, shorts, documentaries, animations and experimental pieces, this year's edition continues the festival's celebration of both traditional and contemporary Japan.

Relocated beneath the architectural splendour of the Lambeth Workhouse (better known as the childhood residence of Charles Chaplin), Zipangu Fest 2012 is set to take place at the historically significant Cinema Museum in Kennington, South London from September 14th to 16th.

The Cinema Museum, known for its burgeoning collection of cinema memorabilia and extensive film archive, sets the scene for this year's Reel Zipangu strand, a tribute to the legacy of celluloid in a rapidly digitalising world. With the majority of our screenings from 16mm or 35mm film, including several screenings of as yet unseen rarities, Reel Zipangu aims to celebrate the very physical essence of celluloid film.

Elsewhere Zipangu Fest 2012 is excited to present a special strand on Japan's Brazilian immigrant community, whilst the ever-popular Beyond Anime section will see its triumphant return.

Following the main festival in London, Zipangu Fest will be touring its new programme to venues across the UK.

The full programme of Zipangu Fest 2012 will be announced at a soon-to-be-revealed event at the Prince Charles Cinema on August 22nd.
