Yamagata Film Commission

The Yamagata Film Commission provides support to movies, TV programs, commercials, and filmmaking production in the region. Since 2012, it has expanded in scale to include 5 cities and 2 towns neighboring Yamagata City to better service and support filming needs. Now with an average of 60 visiting production teams and an increase in larger productions including feature films, this initiative has raised the Yamagata brand, contributed to economic returns and incentive for tourism, and added extra cultural value to the region. In 10 years, the office has assisted around 480 teams coming to Yamagata City for filming.
