Yamagata Rough Cut!

Grant: The Japan Foundation Asia Center Grant Program for Promotion of Cultural Collaboration

October 6–7, 9   [Venue] KUGURU   [Admission] Admission free

This program is not for comparing the relative merits of various works. Rather, we will be looking at fragments of the world—“rough cuts”—in the form of footage yet to be spliced into any kind of finished product, screened just as it is. The program’s aim is that producers, critics, researchers, audience members, and all kinds of people who gather at the festival may through their interaction in this place transcend the limits of personal role, genre, and nationality. In addition, this year sees the start of the first Rough Cut call for entries from across Asia, while local high school and university students have also been invited to join in the discussions.
