Yubari 2015: MAKEUP ROOM Takes Top Award In Fantastic Off Theatre Competition
Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival wrapped up its snow-set celebration of genre madness after announcing winners at the Closing Ceremony. Five of the eight films in the Fantastic Off Theatre Competition received prizes but it was former adult video director Morikawa Kei that walked away with the Grand Prix. While Morikawa was left speechless by his win, Haman director Tetsuya Okabe expressed surprise at receiving the Governor Award with a film tackling the tale of a monstrous tooth-filled vagina. The prizes were decided by a jury consisting of Omori Kazuki, Mike Hostench, Nishimura Yoshihiro and Alex Zahlten.

Morikawa's film Makeup Room revolves around the back stage dramas that unfold in the makeup room during the shooting of an adult video. Originally written as a stage play, the action takes place within a single room. The director, a seasoned veteran of the AV industry, based the conversations that take place on his own real-life observations.
