Discover Japan through film! High school students are invited to explore and discuss issues portrayed in contemporary Japanese cinema with professional filmmakers. In this 10-day workshop, students learn how to produce short documentaries on Japan-related themes through lectures/discussions with independent producers and directors, hands-on training in production, and screenings of great Japanese films, including features and documentaries. Student films will be screened on the final day of the program, followed by a reception. Participants must be high school students as of September 2006.

This program is offered in conjunction with Downtown Community Television Center (DCTV).

Tuition:  $70. Lunch & materials included. Download the registration form (PDF).  The student film screening and reception are free and open to the public.

Education Programs are made possible with generous funding from the Freeman Foundation.
