Mission / description The Kyoto HISOTRICA International Film Festival, also known simply as “HISTORICA” or “KHIFF,” is the only film festival created under the unifying theme of “history.” With a cosplay contest, talk session with voice actors and actresses, jidaigeki filmmaking workshop in English, film pitching contest as well as a film screening, KHIFF breaks the mold of traditional film festivals.

KHIFF consists of “Historica Screenings” which offers screenings of some of the latest period films from around the world, “Kyoto Filmmakers’ Lab” which gives young filmmakers from both Japan and abroad the opportunity to experience Jidaigeki filmmaking while working alongside professionals at actual studios in Kyoto and “Kyoto Film Pitching,” a film pitching contest where both amateur and professional filmmakers pitch film ideas for projects in Kyoto, “Kyoto Bakumatsu Festival” which is popular with consumers and cosplayers (costume fanatics) alike.
