Through its long history, the Tokyo International Film Festival has engaged in promoting outstanding films as a major international film festival in Asia. As a new initiative for a further leap, we will hold a panel discussion “World Cinema Conference” where we will bring together distinguished guests from overseas on October 31st.
We will invite film industry professionals, especially those from international film festivals, to discuss “the future of the film industry”. We hope that this event will provide an insight into the challenges and prospects of the film industry through discussions among people working in the front lines of international film festivals.
This program will stream LIVE on the Tokyo International Film Festival YouTube official channel from 18:30 on October 31 (Sun).
