[Directors’ Statement]  
“Films that address the present, and possess a special power”

FILMeX has always offered new directions in cinema.

At this year’s TOKYO FILMeX, the 18th edition, we shall resolutely screen numerous appealing and compelling films that address the present and abound with amazing passion and power, transcending genre, space, and time.

The strength of cinema is astounding. It tears down fixed notions, and shows the world in a different light. It can even change your life.
Once again, we have prepared a program of painstakingly, exhaustively selected works.

FILMeX is also a venue for eagerly-anticipated films that excite even film professionals.
Stunning films, and profound words from directors. These stimulating cinematic experiences are exactly what FILMeX is all about. Let’s enjoy these nine days together, and revel in the brave adventures of filmmakers.

In addition to our official selections, don’t forget our various event projects such as the International Critics Forum, Talents Tokyo, and Eiga no Jikan Plus.

We greatly appreciate press cooperation in spreading the word about TOKYO FILMeX.
