The Obihiro Tourism and Convention Bureau posted a casting call for extras on a film project on Wednesday. According to the casting call, the film is shooting this summer in the Tokachi area of Hokkaido in and around Obihiro City. The film will be a "portrait of teens set in an agricultural high school." Keisuke Yoshida (Cafe Isobe, Triangle) is directing the film with the production companies TBS and Wilco (All About Lily Chou-Chou) and the distributor TOHO.
The Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji) television anime premiered in Japan this month, and the bureau is hosting a banner for the anime. The anime used Hokkaido Obihiro Agricultural High School as the model for the fictional Hokkaido agricultural high school first seen in Hiromu Arakawa's original manga.
