The fourth annual L.A. EigaFest, running Sept. 12-14 at the Egyptian Theater, will honor Tom Cruise with the second annual Japan Cool Content Contribution Award (J3C Award). The award, presented by the Japanese government, honors Hollywood creators and personalities who help bring Japanese content to a worldwide audience.

This is the first time that the J3C Awards will be held in conjunction with L.A. EigaFest. In addition to Tom Cruise, “Edge of Tomorrow” director Doug Liman and “Godzilla” producer Legendary Pictures will be honored at the ceremony, held Sept. 13 at the official residence of the consul general of Japan in Los Angeles.

L.A. EigaFest, presented by the Japan Film Society, hosts several premieres and special screenings with the intention of showcasing Japanese and Japanese-influenced films to American audiences.

This year, L.A. EigaFest will open with the international premiere of “Lupin the Third,” featuring director Ryuhei Kitamura and actress Meisa Kuroki. Both the original and 2014 versions of “Godzilla” will screen in honor of the franchise’s 60th anniversary. The festival will close with the U.S. premiere of “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno.”
