Before embarking on a career as a director, Koreeda worked as an assistant director on documentaries for television. He later directed his first television documentary, Lessons from a Calf, in 1991. His 2013 film Like Father, Like Son was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. It won the Jury Prize and won a commendation from the Ecumenical Jury.

According to the Harvard Film Archive, Koreeda's works "reflect the contemplative style and pacing of such luminaries as Hou Hsiao-hsien and Tsai Ming-liang."
In a 2009 interview, Koreeda stated that Still Walking was based on his own family.

His film Shoplifters won the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
