Japan's Skip City International D-Cinema Festival ＳＫＩＰシティ国際Ｄシネマ映画祭 will return to its traditional July slot after last year shifting to October as a reaction to the earlier earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
The festival says it will run for 9 days from 14-22 Jul 2012 and operate its familiar feature and short film competitions for digital films. Deadline for submissions is 1 Mar 2012.
In October the 8th edition of the festival awarded its ¥1.5 million ($19,400) Grand Prize to Rwandan film Kinyarwanda, directed by Alrick Brown.
