Always Sunset on Third Street '64

Always Sunset on Third Street '64 posterThe 15th Japanese Film Festival came to close in Sydney tonight with an Australian premiere screening of Life Back Then. Before the film, we were given a sneak preview at one of the films that will be on the 16th Japanese Film Festival Program in 2012. Always: Sunset on Third Street 3, due out early next year in Japan, will make its Australian debut at our favourite film festival.

Also known as Always: Sunset on Third Street ’64, the third film in the popular series follows 2007’s Always: Sunset on Third Street 2. The original Always: Sunset on Third Street opened the 10th Japanese Film Festival back in 2006.

Meanwhile, the 15th Japanese Film Festival continues on in Melbourne from 29 November 2011 through 6 December. In addition to the wonderful Sydney program, it will also feature a Kenji Misumi retrospective including Destiny’s Son, The Homely Sister, Ken, Yotsuya Ghost Story and On the Road Forever.

Always: Sunset on Third Street 3 will be released in Japan on 21 January 2012. Here a look at the trailer:
