Would you like to translate a movie? We are looking for translation volunteers.

The 26th Kyoto International Student Film Festival is looking for volunteer translators who can translate domestic and international student films (Japanese or English) to be screened at this film festival.
The translated content will be displayed as subtitles at the screening of the 26th Kyoto International Student Film Festival to be held in February 2024.

<What is the Kyoto International Student Film Festival?>
This film festival is Japan’s largest international student film festival, planned and operated mainly by university students in the Kansai region, mainly in Kyoto. We collect independent films produced by students from all over the world, judge them, create opportunities to screen them, and aim to discover future filmmakers. Click here for details
