From October 31 (Sat.) to November 9 (Mon.), 2020, the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival, one of the most prestigious film festivals in Asia, will be held.
This festival will provide audiences with new participation-based experiences by integrating physical and online means, such as a system in which online viewers are able to share experiences that the audiences in a movie theater have.
TIFF is an international festival accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations. Since its inauguration in 1985 as the first large-scale film festival in Japan, TIFF has been making a great mark in the film industry and the cultural vitalization in Japan and other Asian countries.
The 2020 TIFF will take on a new style of work screening by integrating physical and online means, while, as a premise, providing full-fledged measures for preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus disease. It will provide audiences with new participation-based experiences, such as a system in which online viewers are able to share experiences that the audiences in a movie theater have.
Japan will bring together outstanding content from all over the world and provide opportunities to have Japanese and global content to be shown alongside each other, and thereby contribute to conveying Japanese culture to the international community.
The opening and closing ceremonies of the festival and a variety of related seminars will be broadcasted online to the public. For more information, visit the official website and the official channel below:
