  • Kiyoshi Kurahara

    Kiyoshi Kurahara was born in Fukuoka, Japan, on May 28, 1985.
    He graduated from Tokyo Film Center School of Arts (FC Tokyo), where he specialized in film direction. For eight years from the age of 18, he gained experience working as a projectionist at a movie theater, while at the same time studying film production. At 21, we began production of his short film A Stone of the Sun, which went on to win the “Annual Best Film Award” at FC Tokyo, as well as many other awards including the “Best Short Film Award / The Kawaguchi Citizen’s Award” at SKIP City International D-Cinema Film Festival in 2009. By depicting characters and landscapes entirely in silhouette, Kurahara succeeded in creating a uniquely original and fantastical live-action short. A Stone of the Sun was nominated for the 2009 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival (a competition that is regarded as a prelude to the Academy Awards) and shown in Hollywood. It also received the “Best International Fantasy Short Film Award” at the New York International Independent Film Festival 2009, and has enjoyed high critical acclaim both in Japan and overseas.
    Black & White Foxes and the Cave of Light is a self-produced pilot version of a project announced in 2010, and it was shown at the Montreal World Film Festival in 2012.
    In 2013, Kurahara established his own independent production company, and began filming his short historical film The Wind and the Boat at Arashiyama, Kyoto, in February 2014. The refreshing visual beauty and dramatic techniques used in this piece led to its recognition and screening at the Hawaii International Short Film Festival in 2014, and the New York International Independent Film Festival in 2015. At the Indie Fest USA 2015 international film festival held in Southern California, The Wind and the Boat achieved a double victory, being awarded both the Best of Festival Award (covering both full-length feature film and short film categories) and the Best Asian Film Award; as well as receiving nominations for the Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Short Film awards.
    Currently, Kurahara is also undertaking the production of promotional videos and corporate introduction videos, at the request of the CEOs of various companies.
