Godzilla Appears at Godzilla Fest (ゴジラ ゴジラ・フェスに現る,   Gojira Gojira Fesu ni Arawaru) is a 2020 short film directed by Kazuhiro Nakagawa for Godzilla Fest 2020 Online. Funded by TOHO Visual Entertainment, its monster scenes were filmed entirely with an iPhone on a Toho Studios lot.


Japan is suddenly struck with disaster as alarms are sounded and emergency reports are broadcasted over the radio. A group of civilians flee, with one exclaiming, "Godzilla!" Godzilla is then seen among a ravaged city and continues on his rampage. Fighter jets are deployed to engage the monster, but prove to have no effect. As Godzilla continues to topple buildings and trample cars, he approaches a reporter who is standing in the street. Godzilla stares the man down before unleashing a blast of atomic breath.

Suddenly, a man calls, "Cut!" and the attack is revealed to have simply been a movie. Two staff members approach the Godzilla suit and help its actor emerge. The men look toward the camera and laugh, and the end card appears.
