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 eleven-year history of Kyoto Filmmakers Lab, a total of 287 participants from 49 countries, selected from 1429 applicants from 100 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.

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 August 20th. Looking forward to see you in KYOTO.
