2014-10-27 | DDS 2014 Special Event
A Meeting with Philip

Call for documentary projects!

In autumn 2012, we held “A Meeting with Iikka” at the DDS 2012, where 6 young documentarists discussed their documentary projects with renowned Finnish producer Iikka Vehkalahti. Later, The End of the Special Time We Were Allowed was completed and screened at the YIDFF 2013 and released theatrically, while other projects by Kubota Keiko, Sugimoto Akiko, and Kotani Tadasuke are now near completion.

This year again, for those of you who have been working on documentary project in solitude, this is your chance to meet Singaporean film critic, editor and expert festival consultant Philip Cheah, to reflect on your project through the eyes of an outside professional.

From an open call for entries, we will choose 6 projects and translate from Japanese to English. After a 20-minute presentation by the filmmaker, she/he will engage in discussion with Philip Cheah and other advisors. Taking place in the audience of a general public, the discussions will be free and open.

November 4 (Tue)

* The selected projects will be announced online on November 14 (Fri).
