All About Film Festivals

09:00–17:00 (Closed on Monday)・Jul 02, 2021–Sep 12, 2021・Kamakura City Kawakita Film Museum 2-2-12 Yukinoshita Kamakura-city, Kanagawa

International film festivals have become a bridge for cross-border filmmakers to interact with each other — and the global audience — in a creative dialogue and raise urgent social issues. Two figures who had propelled the Japanese film industry to the international spotlight were husband-and-wife duo Kashiko and Nagamasa Kawakita. A film producer and entrepreneur, Nagamasa was instrumental in distributing both foreign and Japanese films after World War II. Kashiko, who was determined to build a film library in Japan, established the Japan Film Library Council to preserve films as “cultural properties.” The space would then be renamed into the Kawakita Memorial Film Institute following her husband’s passing. All About Film Festival will honor the Kawakitas’ legacy by displaying a series of film festival poster designs, commemorative photos of filmmakers and trophies. Screenings of award-winning films and special talk events will also be held.
