Documentary Film Award

University of Pittsburgh Japan Documentary Film Award

The Japanese Council of the University of Pittsburgh is excited to announce the 2020 University of Pittsburgh Japan Documentary Film Award. Inspired by the work of Soda Kazuhiro, the award celebrates contemporary films that explore Japanese culture in Japan and around the world. Films should focus on the geographic region of Japan, although topics could include contemporary or historical cultural or social phenomena, practices, or events. The award is available to films of all lengths, from all countries, and in all languages. One film will be selected as the winning entry and screened as part of a larger event.
