The ninth annual Sacramento Japanese Film Festival will feature seven movies to be screened Friday through Sunday, July 12-14, at the Crest Theatre.

“Haru’s Journey,” a 2010 road movie, shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 12. The film follows a cranky grandfather and his teenage granddaughter as they take off in search for a better life with new beginnings.

Saturday’s showings begin at 12:45 p.m. with “Every Night Dreams,” followed at 2:20 p.m. by Studio Ghibli’s 2011 anime film, “A Letter to Momo,” which took seven years to make. It won the 2012 Asian Pacific Screen Award for Best Anime Film.

“The Knot” shows at 4:45 p.m. , followed by “13 Assassins,” a 2011 film directed Takashi Miike. It takes place in the twilight of the samurai era and feudal Japan. The final battle of 13 samurai against a force of more than 200 men was awarded four Japanese Oscars in 2011.

Sunday kicks off with “Key of Life” at 1:30 p.m. The festival concludes with “Mrs. Judo: Be strong, be gentle, be beautiful,” a 2012 film, focuses on the life of Keiko Fukada. Fukada, born in 1913, is the granddaughter of a samurai warrior, and the only woman awarded the 10th degree black belt in judo.

Filmmaker Yuriko Romer, who will be on hand at the Crest, took home the 2013 Moscow Film Festival Award for Best Documentary.

All movies are in Japanese with English subtitles. Single movie tickets are $10, and an all-festival pass is $35. Tickets are available at tickets.com or 800-225-2277. There is free parking in the public lot at 10th and L streets with a voucher from the Crest.
