‘They compare me to Ozu’

“My mother loved films! She adored Ingrid Bergman, Joan Fontaine, Vivien Leigh. We couldn’t afford to go together to the cinema, but she was always watching their movies on TV. She stopped all family business or discussions to watch these movies. We would watch together. So I adored film – like her.”

Film Studies

The COVID-19 pandemic has shattered lives but, at the same time, it has made us get closer to one another and find solidarity in life. Nothing reflects this solidarity, this acceptance of diversity, this co-existence of various beliefs and opinions, more than the world of cinema, media and, visual arts.
Films, scripts, tv shows and music videos all play their parts in making our current life more bearable and they can show us how to be human beings, how to cherish each and every moment and opportunity in life and how to love one another.

Here at the Japan International Film Festival, we celebrate and highlight various experiments and experiences in the worlds of cinema, media, and visual arts, and we are trying to provide a platform for artists of all backgrounds to come together and share their narratives. We sincerely hope that by gathering the greatest talents in independent cinema/media, we can provide our audience (and fans) a chance to have a sublime experience.
