Description

The Kyoto HISOTRICA International Film Festival, also known simply as “HISTORICA” or “KHIFF,” is the only film festival created under the unifying theme of “history.” KHIFF consists of “Historica Screenings” which offers screenings of some of the latest period films from around the world, “Kyoto Filmmakers’ Lab” which gives young filmmakers from both Japan and abroad the opportunity to experience Samurai-filmmaking while working alongside professionals at film making studios with the history in Kyoto and “Kyoto Film Pitching,” a film pitching contest where both amateur and professional filmmakers pitch film ideas for projects in Kyoto, “Kyoto Bakumatsu Festival” which is popular with consumers and cosplayers (costume fanatics) alike.
