AFM: Fortissimo Raises Glass to ‘Kampai’

HONG KONG – Fortissimo Films will handle international sales of Japanese documentary “Kampai! For the Love of Sake.”

The English- and Japanese-language film is currently in production under the direction of Mirai Konishi and explores the world of Sake, Japan’s national drink.

The film is produced by Konishi’s L.A. based Wagamama Media, along with L.A.-based producer, Chiaki Yanagimoto. It is executive produced by Nao Komai and Synca Creations CEO, Soojun Bae and will be presented in association with Fortissimo.
