Commemorating the 15th anniversary of Kyoto HISTORICA International Film Festival, we are holding a conference event “HISTORICA Ozashiki” where diverse creators will gather on the sixth floor of the Museum of Kyoto. Four spacious tatami rooms – theee 70-jo rooms and one 45-jo room – will be waiting for you.

Centering around cinema as a genre, creators from the fields of games, anime, the metaverse, NFTs, and generative AI will chat about various topics including creation, business, and tech. We are inviting many guests based in Tokyo as well as the Kansai area. By creating a space where the speakers and the audience can learn and talk on the same page, we hope that every participant can find inspiration for their next creation
