I agree completely. In fact this approach seems to be the single factor that prevents so many older Japanese films from reaching cinemas. I don't have a long view of this, being relatively new to film programming, and I confess I haven't yet worked with the Japan Foundation in the UK, but wonder whether collective efforts could be made for scholars and institutional programmers with interests in Japanese film to lobby Toei etc. for a change in attitude?
