CAMERA JAPAN is a Japanese cultural festival organised in Rotterdam every year since 2006. The main focus is on 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.
If you would like to support the festival as a sponsor or advertiser, our partners programme is the next stop.
If you are interested in the history of the festival (or want to remind yourself of your favorite Japanese films), dip into the CAMERA JAPAN archive.
