In the seven-year history of Kyoto Filmmakers Lab, a total of 139 participants from 37 countries, selected from 615 applicants from 81 countries, have experienced filmmaking in Kyoto.
This year, we are excited to 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.
