Camera Japan returns to film theatres and performance venues in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam to present snippets of Japanese culture through cinema, lectures and culinary delights!

Explore Japan through the lens

Japan has an extremely rich and varied film culture that often goes overlooked in the West. Although there are some breakthrough stars and successful crossovers, many of the films and genres just don't receive the attention they deserve. 

Camera Japan seeks to rectify this by not only screening the films, but also developing a cultural programme to give visitors some context and inspire their curiosity for all things Japan. 

Screening over 30 films each year, the genres are mixed and include classical films, anime, samurai specialties, sci-fi, romance, comedy and contemporary issues.
