Win Tickets to See Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha at NYAFF


We here at VCinema are not only going to bring you coverage of the New York Asian Film Festival, we’re also going to send a couple of you to see the films themselves. In conjunction with NYAFF, Japan Cuts, and Variance Films, we’re proud to be able to give away a pair of tickets to one lucky person and a guest to one of two screenings of Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha: The Great Departure (2011) at the Japan Society on East 47th Street between 1st and 2nd avenues in New York.

To enter this contest, send an email to with the subject line “Send me to Buddha!” and include your name, your choice of the two available screenings (Thursday, July 7th at 6:45pm or Sunday, July 10th at 12:30pm), and an answer to the following trivia question:

Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha is based on a manga series.  How many volumes are in the complete series?

All entries must be received by 11:59PST on Sunday, June 28th. One winner will be chosen randomly from all completed entries and their information will be sent to the folks at NYAFF.  Only one entry per email address, please.

Japan Cuts’ description of Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha: The Great Departure:

The much-anticipated animated epic based on Osamu Tezuka’s landmark bio of the Buddha. A spectacular, philosophical drama of life told through the eyes of Siddhartha, who will later become the Buddha.
