Pink Eiga Collection

PINK EIGA (PINK FILMS), Japanese Erotic Cinema, is a short-form, independently produced, Japanese erotic movie subculture. Shot on 35mm film with high production values, creativity and artistry, these films run the genre gamut including comedies, romantic dramas, ‘midnight movies’ and horror films.

The PINK EIGA films are independently produced by a few key production companies, who also provide the distribution chain to independently-operated theatres throughout Japan, which usually show the films in triple-bills. PINK EIGA has provided a fertile proving ground for a number of award-winning filmmakers who were able to hone their skills of the craft in this independent and creative genre, including internationally-renowned directors Masayuki Suo (SHALL WE DANCE), Kiyoshi Kurosawa (CURE), and Yojiro Takita (DEPARTURES: Winner of the 81st annual Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film 2009).

DARKSIDE RELEASING is extremely pleased to have partnered with PINK EIGA TV for digital media distribution in 2017, and we are looking forward to a fruitful, lasting collaboration! Welcome to the world of PINK FILMS and Japanese exploitation cinema!
