CAMERA JAPAN is a cultural festival organised in Rotterdam every year since 2006. The main focus is on Japanese film, but we also explore the visual arts, music, dance, fashion, architecture, food, and much more. Every autumn, we take a selection of films from the programme to Amsterdam for a weekend of screening the best, the weirdest, and the most unexpected cinema from Japan.
If you would like to support the festival with a small annual contribution, please join the CAMERA JAPAN Kurabu and become a Friend of the Festival.
