Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is delighted to announce that we will co-host a workshop for young creators at “Kyoto Filmmakers Lab,” in collaboration with Kyoto Historica International Film Festival (KHIFF).
In keeping with our core principle to “Foster creators for the next generation,” TIFF develops a project in partnership with KHIFF, which has experiences and a proven track record in hosting human resource development workshops for aspiring creators.
From 2015, TIFF has been arranged stimulating lectures for the “Masters Session,” a succeeding program of “Kyoto Filmmakers Lab,” a workshop that has been held as a part of KHIFF since 2007. For the “Masters Session” lectures, a variety of guests who will be invited to TIFF will serve as guest lecturers. We hope to foster the development of talented filmmakers by inspiring young participants in the workshop. This year, they will open “Actors Lab” for young actors/actresses in Japan. “Actors Lab” will provide lectures of traditional style of acting, behavior and manner. The participants can also communicate with young filmmakers from all over the world.
