The Largest Film Festival in Asia
The one and only FIAPF-accredited international film festival in Japan
This year marks the 24th edition of Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF). As the only Japanese film festival accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF)*1, TIFF has played an integral role in Japan’s film industry and cultural scene since its establishment in 1985. TIFF aspires to be recognized as one of the four major film festivals in the world – in the same league as Cannes, Venice and Berlin, which now stand at the summit of the more than 2,600 international film celebrations.
A collection of excellent works from around the world for exclusive screenings, nominated for the “Tokyo Sakura Grand Prix”
Over the nine days of the Festival, films from a variety of genres will be shown in several intriguing programs: Competition, which selects the “Tokyo Sakura Grand Prix” from a carefully chosen ensemble of premiere films presented by both talented first-timers and recognized directors; Special Screenings, which premieres highly entertaining films prior to their public release in Japan; Winds of Asia – Middle East, which boasts the largest number of films and audiences in all the TIFF screenings; Japanese Eyes, which showcases a broad range of Japanese films for worldwide audiences; and natural TIFF highlighting films carrying underlying messages that place emphasis on “the coexistence of humans and nature.”
