Since 2002, the OCVB Okinawa Film Office has attracted filmmakers and crew for TV dramas through our efforts in offering filming locations befitting the storylines, coordinating permits and cooperating to launch screening events. We have provided support and information regarding filming in Okinawa at no cost.
Our efforts are a part of our work to appeal to the world the unique traditions, culture, and rich nature of Okinawa through films. Supporting domestic as well overseas filmmakers mainly from Asia such as Korea and China, we are working to polish the image of Okinawa, and at the same time, utilizing our efforts to promote tourism and vitalize our region.
These requirements are widely recognized and supported by the film industry worldwide. The Film Commission provides behind-the-scene support for production of movies and TV dramas all over the world.
* We are a voluntary organization of location coordinators who assist with location shoots for Japanese and
overseas crews in collaboration with OCVB Okinawa Film Office and other public agencies.
