Yamagata Dojor



The Yamagata Documentary Dojo is a filmmakers-in-residence program hosted in Yamagata, northern Japan. Asian filmmakers working on documentary projects are invited to reside in a hot spring spa, using the retreat as an opportunity to review their work from new perspectives. The program includes a workshop with Japanese filmmakers and international professional mentors, after which the filmmakers focus on reworking their projects while taking part in cultural activities with Yamagata children and residents.
