Community-based Movies supported by Hikari TV
Our movies by us!

“Community-based Movies” are films that put the charms of each region of Japan on display. They reference the lifestyles, legends and geographical uniqueness of each area, while introducing local industries, their produce and tourist attractions.
The film festival will showcase work from 10 districts in Japan as well as 4 films from Aguni village, Yaese Town, Ie village and Naha city.

1. We’re announcing the brand new “Hikari TV Encouragement Prize” along with the creation of an original 4K movie.
The new Hikari TV Prize has been created to support local projects and stimulate interest in regional areas. And Hikari TV will create an original 4K short movie together with the winning region. The theme will be “regional revitalization.”
