Established in 2018, the Venezuelan Film Festival is an initiative driven by the Venezuelan community residing in Japan, aiming to acquaint the Land of the Rising Sun with the rich Venezuelan culture captured by independent film artists. In 2022, in a collaborative effort with Nippon Viajero, the festival organized a remarkable screening in Hayama, Kanagawa capturing the hearts of attendees with a curated selection of films.
Due to its resounding success, the Hayama screening event will be making a highly anticipated comeback on July 8th, 2023.
Furthermore, the annual film festival takes place in Tokyo during the fall season, providing more opportunities for film enthusiasts to immerse themselves in Venezuelan cinema. The festival offers the convenience of online viewing, with all films translated into Japanese and English for wider accessibility.
