This year's Chicago International Film Festival (Chicago's biggest film festival!) will feature six movies from Japan! The programmers cast their nets wide and eclectic this year, for a slate to include the brutally stylish crime flick Smuggler, the somehow touching revenge drama Sleep, the sobering documentary Ending Note: Death of a Japanese Salesman, the contemporary family epic Chronicle of My Mother, the arrested-development-parenting comedy Bunny Drop, and the this-wouldn't-be-a-film-festival-without-a-J-horror-omnibus Kaidan Horror Classics.

Screening dates and time vary depending on the film. Go here for a full list of the Japanese films, or click on the individual film links above for their respective showtimes.

All screenings are held at the AMC River East 21
322 E Illinois St.
Chicago, IL 60610


Admissions passes can be had for anywhere from $90 to $230, depending on how many showings you want to attend and your level of membership.

Individual tickets, meanwhile, are $10 for Cinema/Chicago members, seniors, and students, $13 for everyone else, and $5 for matinees.
