The Japan Film Society is launching a film festival in Hollywood that will highlight current Japanese shorts and feature films.

Dubbed LA EigaFest, the festival runs Nov. 11-13 at the Mann Chinese 6 Theatres. "Eiga" means film in Japanese.

Opening the program is director Yoshimasa Ishibashi's 2011 "Milocrorze: A Love Story."  Ishibashi and star Takayuki Yamada will be on hand for a Q&A after the screening.

The festival concludes with Takashi Miike's 2011 "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai 3D." There also will be an awards ceremony that will present the grand prize for the film judged to be the best in the competition.

A schedule and descriptions of the films playing can be found at the EigaFest website.
