Kyoto HISOTRICA International Film Festival
~The only film festival created under the unifying theme of “history”~
OutlineThe Kyoto HISOTRICA International Film Festival, also known simply as “HISTORICA” or “KHIFF,” is the only film festival created under the unifying theme of “history.”
Around the film festival, we have also experimental events to do with historical period drama, such as a filmmaking workshop for young filmmakers from all over the world to create a short samurai film with professionals, the "Kyoto Filmmakers Lab”, and the "Kyoto Film Pitching" as a pitching film projects. We would like to expand these networks that we have fostered in and out of the country, and aim to become an international hub of communication.
