Project parentage

Welcome to the joint Japanese cinema task force of WikiProject Films and WikiProject Japan!



The Japanese cinema task force is a joint task force of WikiProject Films and WikiProject Japan for the purpose of gathering interested editors in the common purpose of improving Wikipedia coverage of the Japanese cinema and raising the quality of already-existing articles.

Japanese cinema may include not only domestic films, but also films made by Japanese filmmakers outside of the region, films produced or co-produced by Japanese companies, and foreign films shooting within Japan. However per Wikipedia:WikiProject Film#Scope, this task force should not include articles about actors, directors and filmmakers. Those articles are covered by adding parameters for the Actors and Filmmakers and Screenwriters projects accordingly.


Please remember to also add your name to the main lists of film and Japan project members if you are not yet listed there.
