In December 2014, Wa-shoku - traditional Japanese food and cuisine - was recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Japan is home to diverse and abundant nature, and has nurtured an original food culture. The "practice" of this "cuisine," which is based on Japanese temperament, is a "culture" that should be protected by Japan.
On this occasion, Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & ASIA), one of the largest international short film festivals in Asia, launches the"Project introducing the attraction of Japanese Food and Food Culture," designed to spread the attraction of Japanese Food and Japanese Food Culture throughout Japan and the rest of the world.
Under this project, a Special Production Short Film titled "Shabu-Shabu Spirit" has been produced. This short film will be screening online in full from 25th March (Wed) alongside the "WA - SHOKU (Japanese Food) Program," which includes five short films carefully selected for the Japanese Food theme. In addition, "Shabu-Shabu Spirit" will be screening at Expo Milano 2015, held in Milan, Italy as of 1st May 2015. We shall be continuing to publicize Japanese Food and Japanese Food Culture.
