Rainbow Reel Competition

The Rainbow Reel Competition (レインボー・リール・コンペティション) began in 1995 as an annual screening of Japanese short films to encourage production of LGBT-themed films. The audience selects a favorite film and the director is awarded the Grand Prix Rainbow Reel Award (レインボー・リール賞(グランプリ)), currently a ¥100,000 prize ($1000 US).
