Globalization of Film Finance

The Actually Existing Cosmopolitanisms of Japanese Film Producers

(p.75) Chapter Three Globalization of Film Finance
Japanese Cinema Goes Global

Yoshiharu Tezuka

Hong Kong University Press

In the later twentieth century, winning prizes in global film festivals became a focus of production effort and financing motivation, with many filmmakers and financing agents articulating their national differences from the West while seeking integration through direct investment in Western film industries, sometimes by disarticulating Japan's purported cultural “uniqueness” and contributing to the conglomerization of US and European media and film industries. Meanwhile, Japan's domestic markets were gradually opening to more Western products and symbols. Case studies in this chapter include interviews with younger generation filmmakers who started their careers after the demise of the Japanese studio production system, and who played key parts in the globalization of Japanese film finance.
