Tokyo International Film Festival is the biggest film festival in Asia, where producers, buyers and journalists gather from all over the world. Anyone is welcome to join this film festa. It will be held for 9 days from October 23 to 31 this year, mainly at Roppongi Hills (Minato City). To enjoy this huge festival even more, let me introduce some tips.
On the Opening Day, beautifully dressed actors, actresses and directors will walk down from Roppongi Keyakizaka Dori to the Opening Ceremony venue.
They will walk on the Green Carpet that is made of recycled materials again this year and emphasize the festival theme of "Ecology." Please look forward to finding out who will appear at the Green Carpet which is the most gorgeous and fabulous ceremony in Japanese film industry.
During the Tokyo International Film Festival, films chosen from all over the world will be screened unsparingly from morning to late at night. A feature of screenings at TIFF is that actors/directors etc. will be appear on stage to interact with movie fans in many sessions. Especially at a Q&A, you will have an unforgettable experience by directly asking questions and telling comments of the film you have just seen. This is exclusively to TIFF events.
There is a chance to see celebrities even if you could not obtain a ticket that you wanted. You may see them at the outdoor events held in Roppongi Hills Arena or at a press conference in TIFF movie café. Experiences of being close to gorgeous guests would make you love movies even more.
People who choose films shown at film festivals are the professionals titled as Programming Director. Many considerations are made in terms of film selections that include degree of perfection, news hook, theme, production nation/region and more. These chosen films will bring you some new experiences. One of the features at the festival is an opportunity to watch some well-recognized films from other film festivals like Cannes or Venice before it is released to the public.
On the other hand, to watch a film from unfamiliar country/region opens door to a world full of diversity, beyond borders and history between countries. Also there are many movie sessions that give you cheaper price than usual ones. Let's be a part of this movie world.
Furthermore, there are a lot of fun Events which will take place during the festival, including "TIFF movie café" which gives the film fans a chance to interact with each other, as well as Arena and Green Carpet Area.
All the ticket has an assigned seat number in each session. By clicking a ticket button in each film page, you can access to the ticketing information of the advance ticket and can purchase it online. For more information about tickets, please refer to "Ticketing" page on our website.
A key to a film selection is to follow your first impression of a film from its trailer. You should be able to meet unknown experiences.
I will see you later at the festival!
