JFP Joint

  • Organization : Japanese Film Project
  • Section : Project for improvements in the creative environment
  • Type of Grant Program : Single

JFP joint was implemented as a platform for young people and women working in the film industry. The project offered online lectures on a trio of themes presumed to present challenges for film and video freelancers: social security, accounting, and harassment prevention.

For the culmination of the project, a symposium was held in which four female filmmakers of different ages and positions appeared on stage to discuss their respective challenges. Over 70 people participated, and after the symposium various exchanges and connections developed without barriers between speakers and participants.


Japanese Film Project
JFP is a non-profit organization that researches and makes proposals in order to examine and resolve issues surrounding gender inequalities, labor conditions and the lack of young talent in the Japanese film industry. Now and in the past, various forms of harassment, poor compensation, and long working hours have been brought to attention in the Japanese film industry while the industry-at-large has been bemoaning the lack of young people working in production. JFP aims to survey not only these “decision-makers” but to actively incorporate the perspectives of workers on the field and think about designing systems that can be sustained in the Japanese film industry and be proposed as policy.
