2018 is proof that the human drama at the heart  of KIDNAP CAPITAL is still very much alive, and current to our times. After a surprise invite to the official competition of the very first edition of the Mt. Fuji-Atami Film Festival, KIDNAP CAPITAL took home one of the event’s top prizes, as Felipe Rodriguez won the Award for Best Director on closing night.

The Festival was created by Japanese Broadcast powerhouses Aon Cinemas and SKY Perfect TV to introduce high quality, new international films to the Japanese market, and featured a jury of seasoned industry leaders, headed by Elliot Grove, founder of both Raindance and the British Independent Film Awards.
