10th Japan Wildlife Film Festival takes place over four
in Toyama from August 4th to 7th, 2011.
in 1993, the Festival is held biennially.
It started in the hope that by screening moving images of
the wonders of wildlife and the co-existence of nature and
people, we could help to increase understanding and wareness
of the urgent need to protect and care for the natural world.
With your cooperation, the festival is now in its 19th year.
the 9th Festival we received 347entries from 42 countries
and 30,000 people, including school children, attended the
public screenings staged throughout the Toyama region. International
filmmakers and broadcasters and the Japanese public now
know the Festival as one of the biggest of its kind in Asia.
the film competition as its focus, we also hosts seminars
by scientists and filmmakers and support active international
exchanges among filmmakers and broadcasters trusting they
may lead to new co-productions and distribution opportunities.
much look forward to receiving your wonderful films and
welcoming you to the Festival!!
