TIFF Talk Salon 2021

talksalon
 
Due to the remaining difficulty of bringing foreign guests to Japan, TIFF Talk Salon will be held again this year to connect domestic and international actors and filmmakers with fans.
There will be a lot of behind-the-scenes stories that you can only hear here. Unlike last year’s event, which was limited to viewers of the films, this year’s event will be available to a wider audience via YouTube. We will also accept questions before the start and during the live streaming.
(Please note that we may not be able to answer all questions due to limited time)
Please look forward to this unique event designed for movie fans.
