About Performance Prices

Prices for silent film screenings with benshi vary depending on benshi, mode of performance (live or Minidisk), film, venue capacity, purpose of screening, and performance date and time.
If you have a fixed budget, we will propose a program within that budget. Or, if you have a certain mode of performance in mind, we will prepare an estimate accordingly. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
