Thank you for your waiting. We have decided to hold Kyoto Filmmakers Lab 2021 in this fall. We have still under the threat for the spread of COVID-19, but we open online application form for HANDS-ON JIDAIGEKI program and Masters Session program same as last year.
Our purpose is sharing diversity and making network for young filmmakers. In the 14-year history of Kyoto Filmmakers Lab, a total of 375 participants from 50 countries, selected from 1,811 applicants from 110 countries, have experienced KFL workshops and collaborate with each other in Kyoto.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will call for the participants only who lives in Japan for HANDS-ON “JIDAIGEKI” program. Sorry for the situation, the people who lives outside Japan can NOT apply to HANDS-ON “JIDAIGEKI” program just as last year. For the same reason, we will call for the participants for Masters Session program by two formats. One for the participants who lives in Japan, the other is for who lives outside Japan. The participants who lives in Japan will be able to participate in all program in Kyoto, Japan. The participants who lives outside Japan will be able to participate in online program (Masters Session Online) only. We have held the whole program in English basically until now, but we force to be held the program in Japanese basically this year. Except that we plan to supply an interpreter for English speakers in Masters Session Online.

We hope that this program will be a meaningful opportunity for aspiring filmmakers in this ever-changing visual arts world. We welcome to accept your application until September 23rd.

Thank you for your understanding and for being interested in our project.
