Apart from "The Firebird," young Novgorodians will have a chance to see Isao Takahata's film "The Grave of Glowworms." The opening ceremony and the screening of the first adult film, "Basara: The Princess Goh" by Teshigahara Hiroshi, will be staged at the city's Movie Center. Other movies for grown-ups are "My Secret Treasures" by Shinobu Yaguchi, "The Osaka Story" by Kon Ichikawa, and "Charisma" by Kiyoshi Kurosawa.

From Veliky Novgorod, the Japanese films will move on to various district centers. All screenings in the framework of the festival are free.
