Following on from successful international film screenings of “Mountain”, “This is Home”, “The Way East”, “The Fourth Phase” and “Fruition”, MnK are hosting “Phenomena” a Niseko short film festival on the evening of the 31st March 2018. We would love for you to be a part of this event celebrating Niseko's unique culture, community, environment and human potential through arts and film.

For this first year, we want to focus on getting the local community around the event. While we expect most entries to come from locals and seasonal workers, entry is open to anyone from across the world– professionals down to first timers!
