GINZAZA is a short film playground inside an underground parking lot.
Each edition will be a unique exploration into the short film format.
Our goal is to create a space where anyone, from non-movie goers to busy bees, can casually stop by.
The films may be short, but we hope you’ll think about them for a long time.
