How to Enjoy TIFF 2014

Tokyo International Film Festival is one of the largest international film festivals in Asia, where directors, actors, professionals in the film industry and journalists gather from around the world. Various films that can only be seen at the film festival will be screened every day from much-talked-about epic entertainment to rare works from abroad which are not scheduled for public release in Japan. Directors and actors will take to the stage after screening to be with the fans, too. In addition, the venues this year have been expanded to include Nihonbashi, where "The World of Hideaki Anno" will be featured. The Roppongi Hills Arena will be packed with events for everyone to enjoy. Please come and experience the Tokyo International Film Festival, which is changing significantly.
