Tokyo has big plans for 25th celebrations


BY LIZ SHACKLETON The Tokyo International Film Fes- tival (TIFF) is planning a range of special programmes to celebrate its 25th edition this year (October 20-29). These include screenings of Japanese classics, a catalogue and a festival slogan. TIFF is also planning to host preview screen- ings, for both the industry and public, of upcoming titles from the US and Japanese studios’ release slates. “We are working to bring back the younger generation to cinemas


through special offers and market- ing programmes,” said TIFF chair- man Tom Yoda. Yoda also explained the reason-


ing behind moving contents mar- ket TIFFCOM (October 23-25) from the festival’s Roppongi Hills venue to the Grand Pacific Le Daiba complex on the man-made island of Odaiba. “The new venue gives us 20%


more space for the market to expand; a one-stop marketplace with sales booths, screenings and seminars all on the same floor;


and a more relaxing environment on Tokyo Bay,” Yoda said. TIFF will provide shuttle buses


between the market and its Rop- pongi Hills venue, which is a 20-minute drive away. Odaiba is 20 minutes from Haneda Airport and 70 minutes from Narita Air- port, and is also accessible by the city’s train system. TIFFCOM’s Mika Morishita


said the market was still planning the format of this year’s projects market, which last year separated established and new film-makers.
