Thank you for your waiting! We open our online application. Check our guidelines and apply now!

Our purpose is sharing diversity and making network for young filmmakers. In the nine-year history of Kyoto Filmmakers Lab, a total of 210 participants from 45 countries, selected from 1002 applicants from 94 countries, have experienced KFL workshops and collaborate with each other in Kyoto. From 2015, we deliver edgy lectures in collaboration with Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF), the largest film festival in Japan, in addition to our signature Jidaigeki making workshop. This year, they will open “Actors Lab ” for young actors/actresses in Japan. “Actors Lab” will provide lectures of traditional style of acting, behavior and manner. The participants can also communicate with young filmmakers from all over the world.

We hope that this program will be a meaningful opportunity for aspiring filmmakers in this ever-changing visual arts world. We accept your application until September 17th. Looking forward to see you in KYOTO.
