What’s Creative Café?


Yamagata City of Film organizes a monthly event named Creative Café, where people in Yamagata can exchange opinions and get to know each other without concerning the differences in age, sex, and nationality.

There are two types of Creative Café:

  1. an event inviting a guest speaker from culture or film section to talk, discuss or do workshop
  2. a tea time providing a space and a cup of tea for people to sit and talk about different themes

The most interesting part of this project is that the council staffs take each turn to organize the event  so that every events are unique and different!

Yamagata Renaissance Project is an initiative to produce a series of films that will introduce the appeal of Yamagata’s traditional crafts through new and contemporary eyes and offer young local film talent a chance to hone their skills. In 2018, we have produced a short film spotlighting Yamagata’s traditional culture “Yamagata Maiko (apprentice geisha)”. For this time, we will hold the screening event inviting the director, Mr. Koichi Sato, to talk about the behind the scenes.
