Will one of the next great Japanese Movie Directors, Actress or Actors make their break in America? While I can't answer that but what I can say is that the "Japan Film Society" is alive and strong in Los Angeles and gaining support with every event they throw. These events are a good opportunity to network within that community and find people for your motion picture based projects. Check them out at their website: http://japanfilmsociety.org/. Thanks to Winston's on Santa Monica for hosting the event.
