Last year, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the JET Programme, JETs past and present placed all around Japan created short, bilingual videos about the beauty of the areas they lived in as part of the JET Programme Video Contest. The JET Film Festival on Saturday November 18th at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art in Kobe will screen the winning entries of this contest, as well as “Live Your Dream: The Taylor Anderson Story“, the documentary of the life and legacy of Taylor Anderson, a JET participant from the US who lost her life in the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Join us at this event and support the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund, which was set up in her honour.
After the film screening will be a reception, providing an opportunity for you to network with current JETs, JET alumni and the local community over light refreshments. (Limited to first 50 people only. 2000 yen, or 1000 yen for current JETs/JET Alumni)
Please also see the leaflet below. We look forward to welcoming you there!
