The opening film for the festival will be “The Net” by KIM Ki-duk, and the closing film will be “Trivisa” produced by Johnnie TO. New films by directors close to TOKYO FILMeX such as Amir NADERI, Rithy PANH and WANG Bing will be presented. In FILMeX Classics, masterpieces of film history and films thought to be long lost will be screened after digital remastering. In the competition section, fresh faces will be presented with 6 out of 10 films being directorial feature debuts. Special screenings will focus on 2 Israeli films which gained acclaim in the Cannes and Venice film festival.
Please be careful, as the ticket system for this year has changed.
Stay in tune, as we will also be trying new ideas such as Filmarks Award and Under 25 Discount.
The film festival will be held on Nov. 19 (Sat) ~ Nov. 27 (Sun) at Yurakucho Asahi Hall and Toho Cinemas Nichigeki.
