Japan Foundation 2020 Video Matsuri (Film Contest)
Entries close on September 1, 2020
Combine your Japanese ability with your creativity and acting skills to make a 3 minute film.
This year’s signature item is a water bottle (すいとう). The special item is included each year as a bit of fun and should be planted or featured somewhere or somehow in the film. You may choose to use it subtly in the background, as a prop in the foreground or even as part of the story if you wish. You are encouraged to think of fun or clever ways to include a “chopsticks”!
Aside from the signature item and the use of Japanese language, there are no restrictions on style or theme. You can produce a comedy, a drama, a documentary; you can animate it, you can claymation it – the sky’s the limit!
