Grüezi mitenand, konnichiwa!

Due to the large impact of COVID-19, we had to take the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival. We are truly sad to announce the news.

Japan has declared a state of emergency and the situation is rapidly changing in my home town of Tokyo, too. Just like many of you, I am not sure when I can meet my family in Japan again in person - not digitally. It is a very difficult time for all of us but the GINMAKU team is trying to keep our heads up. We will continue to work for GINMAKU 2021 every day until this crisis is over so that we can all meet at the cinema next year.

The crisis has affected almost all of our festival partners. They are not giving up, either, and are carrying on with their passion during these severe times. These Japan related restaurants, shops and companies in Switzerland are looking forward to your orders and support:

Food and drinks Yoojis (Delivery and take out) Sato (Online sake shop) KABUKI Dressing - akari taste (Online shop, Coop, Globus, etc.) Sala of Tokyo (Voucher: info(at)sala-of-tokyo.ch) IZ Exclusive Japanese Tableware (Online shop)

Media Partner Asienspiegel (Please support our friend, film maker and journalist Jan Knüsel who writes about Japan everyday since 2009 )

All of our partners Festival website 2019

We wish that you and your families are safe and are staying healthy. We take a polite bow to send you regards from our hearts. Thank you for reading - arigatou gozaimasu.

With my warmest regards, Mizuki Mazbara Festival Director

GINMAKU 2020 situationBy Mizuki Mazbara, on 26/3/2020 13:36

Grüezi mitenand, konnichiwa!

I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy under these very challenging circumstances. The situation around COVID-19 is unpredictable, to say the least. And the GINMAKU team is having a difficult time organising the next edition of our film festival, planned for June 2020.

We are closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 in order to come to a decision about GINMAKU. At the moment, we cannot tell whether the festival will take place as planned, or whether it will have to be canceled. We will keep you updated about the decision on our website and on social media, as well as in our newsletter.

Today the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan announced a travel ban from Japan to Switzerland. I have personally never felt both countries being physically and emotionally so far from each other. Every year GINMAKU’s wish is to bring Japan closer to you through wonderful Japanese films to create a cultural bridge at our festival. It would be really sad if we have to cancel our festival this year but we respect the current restrictions on events and put everyone’s health as our top priority.

We wish that you and your families are safe and stay healthy. The GINMAKU team and I love the Swiss style greeting. But these days, we choose our Japanese way: we take a polite bow to send you regards from our hearts.

Thank you for reading - arigatou gozaimasu!

With my warmest regards, Mizuki Mazbara Festival Director
