Hot Docs is pleased to announce that the 2017 Festival will showcase recent works from Japan in its Made In program, and film titles will be announced in March.

“Japan is a country that continues to fascinate the world, and we’re excited to showcase new Japanese documentaries at Hot Docs this year,” said Hot Docs director of programming Shane Smith. “An emerging movement of young, independent filmmakers are bringing their passion and perspective to stories from their homeland, with an eye to reaching global audiences. And Japan’s master filmmakers continue to set a high standard for non-fiction storytelling.”
