CAMERA JAPAN Festival to continue in physical form!

2020 has been a rough year for many film festivals around the world, resulting in many cancelled events.
We’re very happy to offer some hope for every Japanese film lover as we announce that the 15th edition of CAMERA JAPAN Festival will take place in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam theatres.

From September 24 – 27 the festival will take place at LantarenVenster, with a special kick-off at WORM (both Rotterdam) on the 23rd of September, after which the festival moves to Amsterdam where LAB111 will host CAMERA JAPAN Festival from October 1 – 4.

CAMERA JAPAN Festival and its partner venues are keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 developments and will take all necessary measurements to create a safe environment to enjoy the festival responsibly.

CAMERA JAPAN is organised on a voluntary basis by a core group of enthusiastic employees and around 40 volunteers during the festival. Outside the festival CAMERA JAPAN organises screenings on location and with a On Tour programme in theatres nationwide.

CAMERA JAPAN has been made possible through contributions by Rotterdam Festivals, Nederlands Filmfonds, Isaac Alfred Ailion Foundation, and FedEx. The festival is part of the agenda of Rotterdam Festivals. For more information and the complete agenda please check www.rotterdamfestivals.nl.
