Greenhorn Shorts: It Came From Japan

Vending machine love affairs. Puffer fish-eating businessmen. Japanese Doctor Who.

No, this isn’t a list of (really great) band names. It’s just a sample of some of the delights awaiting the lucky audience of our It Came From Japan screening on the 12th November, held in collaboration with our partner Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia!

SSFF & ASIA is a brand dedicated to the creation of film culture and the fostering of a worldwide creative community through talks, seminars and interviews, working with various companies and organisations and finding ways to monetise and promote short film. We’re proud to be partnering with such a strong advocate of new filmmaking talent!

So come on down to the ArtHouse Crouch End on the 12th November, and in return we promise you a weird and wonderful evening of Japanese-inspired creativity not to be forgotten!
