Tokyo Film Festival is a place for unique and underrated films to be seen, films that experience with new methods of narrating their stories. The festival has two sections, namely ‘International’ and ‘Asian’ sections. In the International section, they will select films that explore the human condition and focus on the issues we are facing today. Independent films that deal with refugees and immigrants, the LGBT community, and women and their everyday struggles are the top priority.
In the ‘Asian’ Section, they will focus on the problems in Asia, such as the conflicts in the Middle East and how people in these countries live through war and chaos, and will also shine a light on the cinema in the Far East. The selected films will be judged by an outstanding group of juries who will announce the winners after carefully watching and analyzing each film.
