CAMERA JAPAN Festival 2019
Amsterdam 3-6 October

After a great start in Rotterdam, CAMERA JAPAN is now packing up and heading to Filmtheater Kriterion in Amsterdam. On our website, you can read programme and event descriptions, watch film trailers, and buy tickets for films and workshops. You can also download the all-important blokkenschema, the handy overview of films and events designed to help you put together the perfect schedule for CAMERA JAPAN.

In addition to the film programme, there are three workshops at CAMERA JAPAN in Amsterdam. The calligraphy workshop on Saturday October 5 is already sold out, but on Sunday, there are places left on ORIMAKI's origami workshop on how to make lovely kusudama paper balls. Also on Sunday, SUZUKI Takahide will teach you all you ever wanted to know about powdered green tea in his matcha workshop.
The CAMERA JAPAN Audience Award - The preliminaries
After counting all the votes cast by the audience in Rotterdam, we are pleased to say that nine of the top ten titles for the CAMERA JAPAN Audience Award will also screen in Amsterdam. Currently the top three films are Fly Me to the Saitama, My Dad is a Heel Wrestler, and Penguin Highway. We look forward to hearing the opinions of Amsterdam audiences! Check our website for the top ten titles.
We are particularly excited to announce the winner of the first CAMERA JAPAN Youth Jury Award. After watching six films over four days, the seven members of the jury awarded the prize to Melancholic from director TANAKA Seiji who will receive a €1000 cash prize to be used toward his next project. Melancholic will be screening at 21:30 on Friday evening.

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.
