The Tokyo International Film Festival will undergo a major gear change as it relocates its main venue from Roppongi to the Hibiya, Ginza, and Yurakucho area, invites new programmers, and reorganizes its sections. In the face of the devastating effects the industry has suffered because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Festival will center this year's edition around physical screenings with the following objectives in mind:
1. to envision post-pandemic possibilities for cinema
2. to further enhance the international character of the Festival
3. to actively address SDGs such as gender equality and climate action
With the above objectives in mind, this year's festival will advocate "transcending borders" as one of its main themes. Borders and divides take many forms in today's world — communication breakdowns caused by the pandemic, gender discrimination, economic disparity, international conflict — but it is the Festival's hope that participants may get a glimpse of what the future of cinema may hold when it transcends these barriers and braves its path towards a bright future.
34th TIFF's Visuals
Visual Supervisor: Koshino Junko
he image of an alluring woman repelling even COVID-19 and moving forward into the wind — I think that's the vision of this edition of TIFF in a way. So I created the image of heading into the wind, which is not logical, but something that you can grasp as soon as you see it.
