CAMERA JAPAN Festival 2020
Rotterdam 23-27 September
Amsterdam 2-4 October

On Friday November 15, CAMERA JAPAN is screening Melancholic, the winner of the 2019 CAMERA JAPAN Youth Jury Award, at the Shofukan Japanese Cultural Centre in Rotterdam.

"Entangled with mystery," "funny and weird," "genre-blending" with "strong character development" and "beautiful aspects of Japanese culture." That's how the Youth Jury described the film. Intrigued? Come see for yourself.

We will also serve up some of that legendary CAMERA JAPAN vegan curry. The vegan meal includes curry, dessert, and a complimentary drink.

Dinner will be served at 19:00, one hour before the screening starts.
Film + food is 16 euros. Film only is 6 euros.

To make sure there's plenty to go around without any food going to waste, we strongly recommend buying your film+food tickets online. Tickets will be available via our website until 14:00 on November 15.

If you only want to see the film, you may buy your tickets online at any time, or at the door by cash/pinpas.

The Shofukan is located at Charloisse Kerksingel 32-14, 3082 DB Rotterdam.

We are pausing the Shofukan screenings for a while, so don't miss this chance to enjoy Japanese film in a unique setting in Rotterdam.

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed the 2020 dates in the header.... Yes, we have set the dates for the 15th edition of CAMERA JAPAN next autumn: 23-27 September in Rotterdam, 2-4 October in Amsterdam. We look forward to seeing you there!

Become a friend of the CAMERA JAPAN Festival
From small beginnings in 2006, CAMERA JAPAN has grown into the biggest Japanese cultural festival in the Benelux. Every year, we work hard to screen a broad and diverse cross-section of current Japanese cinema and to organize a substantial side programme with strong links to Japanese culture.

But, like so many other cultural organisations and institutions, CAMERA JAPAN has been hit by decreasing subsidies and rising costs. Thinking about new ways to finance the festival and to offer more value to you, the audience, we came up with the CAMERA JAPAN Kurabu ("kurabu" is the Japanese for club).

The CAMERA JAPAN Kurabu is not a one-off fundraising initiative like Kickstarter, but an opportunity for us to develop long-term relationships with fans of CAMERA JAPAN. You will play a key part in keeping the festival going and you will help us create what we like to think is a very special experience in the Netherlands. So, are you a Momo, an Ume, or a Sakura?

All the details are on our website.
This festival is part of the Rotterdam Festivals.
