Full line-up announced!!


SKIP CITY INTERNATIONAL D-Cinema FESTIVAL which started in 2004 in Kawaguchi City, Saitama Prefecture, has been held every year as a “gateway for emerging talent” centered on the International Competition and the Japanese Film Competition (features and shorts). The festival launched the careers of Kazuya Shiraishi (Sea of Revival), Ryota Nakano (The Asadas), Shinichiro Ueda (One Cut of the Dead), Shinzo Katayama (Siblings of the Cape) and many other directors who are leading the Japanese film industry as top runners and whose new movies audiences are looking forward to seeing.


The 17th edition will be held virtually for the first time for 9 days from Saturday, September 26th to Sunday, October 4th, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection and ensure the safety of audience and related visitors.


On Monday, August 31st, we held an online press conference to announce the full line-up consisting of the titles of the International Competition and the Japanese Film Competition.
