Learn more about Japanese and Brazilian culture with free screenings at the UP Film Institute. Immerse yourself in different movies and be wow-ed by foreign, contemporary film making.

The University of the Philippines is known for housing a venue where movies can be shown without needing the approval of the MTRCB (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board). This results in different movies being shown that may not be seen anywhere else in the Philippines. This enables UP students and visitors to experience freedom of speech at its finest.

For the months of August and September, the UP Film Institute will be showing two exciting film festivals that challenge the imagination and push the boundaries of one's cultural understanding. Instead of showcasing Filipino talents, for these two months, students and outsiders alike are treated to the magic of Japanese and Brazilian film making.

Egai-Sai is the Japanese Film Fest that is shown every year. For 2011, it includes "Departures" the winner or the 81st Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009. Read about it more here. Though it isn't included in the UP line-up, there are still must-see Japanese films not to miss.
