We Okinawa Film Office has been supporting Okinawan filmmakers and people coming to shoot in Okinawa.

Our GOAL is to reinforce the Okinawan brand recognition and boost positive awareness of Okinawa as a filming location.

The islands of Okinawa, there are 160 islands, are a truly diverse and rich region. The charm of Okinawa lies not only in its beautiful ocean and great nature, but also in its unique culture, which includes traditional Okinawan music, dance, ceramics.

And 2022 is a milestone year when Okinawa returns to the mainland and celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Thus, we would like to present to you the film of two below!

The “MIRACLE CITY KOZA” is time-slip rock'n'roll entertainment where the 70's before returning to Japan and the present age intersect on the stage of Okinawa Koza.
The era of American rule and the social situation of Okinawa at the time, and depicts the history, present and future of Okinawa. You can fully enjoy the charm of another music that is different from the Sanshin, which was brought up by Okinawa.

“BACHIRANUN” is a movie set in Yonaguni Island.
The word “BACHIRANUN” means “I will never forget” in the dialect of Yonaguni Island.
How did the island change and how did people's lives change over the  50 years? Through this work, the meaning of the 50th anniversary of its return is reexamined.

Also We hope you enjoy watching various other Okinawa film.
