Since its inception, the calendar of activities of the Vertigo Cinema Association has been open to different cinematographies, but it is true that, on a recurring basis,
Japanese cinema has had a prominent presence.

The interest generated by different specific projections of Japanese cinema gave way, as of 2002, to the celebration of a Japanese Cinema Week, initially organized in collaboration with the
Consulate of Japan in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the Social Work of La Caja Insular de Ahorros.

The notable public success of that activity made it possible to undertake the annual organization of a Japanese Film Week starting in 2003.

Currently, entirely organized by the Vertigo Cinema Association and having the Casa de Colón as its location, it has become
one of the most consolidated activities of the Associationbeing the one that puts the closing touch to each one of its screening seasons.

During these years, the Japanese Film Week has dedicated monographs to some of the most legendary filmmakers in that country (Kurosawa, Ozu, Naruse, Kitano, etc.) and generations and styles have been reviewed (the Chámbara, the generation of the 60s, among others ).
