Film festival for cell phones

No movie theaters needed for this film festival.

Article ha tottemo omoshirokatta desu. Keitai no bunka wa iroiro na mono ga dekimasu darou? I wish I was still in Yokohama so that I would have had the chance to attend the festival. It is true that this new medium of capturing film may be a bit unorthodox and may be a turn-off to some, but the freshness of the actual method of this type of film capturing does invoke an artsy feeling. And you would be correct in assuming that this indeed brings about a more intimate production. Wish I was there!

Innovation, I strongly feel, is one of Japan's srongest traits (e.g. many in tech, video games, etc...)and this may be a start of a new trend of filmmaking darou?


It's such a stereotype that Japanese aren't creative. Sure, bureaucracy abounds in some places, but Akira Kurosawa, Hokusai and Ryunosuke Akutagawa are all Japanese. And as you note, many people today in games and other technology are very innovative. Yuri Kageyama
