Despite the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011, the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) was held as scheduled under the slogan; "Believe! The Power of Films." We welcomed filmmakers, film lovers, and distinguished guests from around the world, and more than 120,000 participants joined the festival.
For the Competition, 975 films from 76 countries and regions were submitted and 15 of these films were selected for screenings.

Regarding film entries for the Competition 2012, detailed information will be available on the TIFF website in late April, 2012.
