American Hikikomori @ Japan Film Festival Los Angeles (JFFLA)


American Hikikomori won 1st prize (or audience choice) for the submissions screenings at JFFLA!! We are grateful for the opportunity to tell our story and meet other filmmakers.


A very big, “ありがとうございました!” to the Japan Film Festival Los Angeles for showcasing our film.


I’d also like thank all of our friends who came out to support us at the screening! I am honored and grateful for your support. It really means a lot.

In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates on future festival screenings and progress on our next film!
