Tokyo CINEMASTERS Film Festival Call for Entries

Welcome to Tokyo CINEMASTERS International Film Festival. 
We are hosting our 1st Annual Festival in OCT 1st 2020 at Tokyo Cine Center.

Through discovering films and directing talent from across the globe, our film festival was founded with the mission of developing the next generation of cinema. 
Japan loves all cinema, regardless of country, language, or race. 
The culture of watching films with subtitles is well established here, with releases from a multitude of nations each year. 

However, the majority of those releases are limited to commercial movies. The reality is that there are a wealth of fantastic overseas directors and films lying dormant that we’re never exposed to. The lack of “international” film festivals in Japan has also been an issue.

Based in Tokyo, a place where new and diverse booms are born, this festival brings together films and people active on a global stage. 
A festival where you can see cinematic work that cross boundaries of race and language.

MOVIE REVIEW: GOOD TIME

user
Since Nightcrawler, no film has better distilled American malaise better than the Safdie brothers’ ironically-named Good Time (2017). The film stars Robert Pattinson in a breakout role as Connie Nikas, an on-the-lam criminal in New York City trying to bail his mentally disabled brother Nick out of jail following a failed bank heist. As he hustles to come up with the $10,000, his night snowballs into a frenzied crime spree that feels utterly surreal as it plunges him into the...

Inherent Vice: Review

Child of indie American cinema, Anderson keeps a sweet tone of bewilderment in his new hors d’oeuvre, which although took time to prepare, is served cold, raw - pleasing, but leaving a mouthwatering effect for a no-show main.      Remembering Anderson’s previous moments with The Master or Magnolia, where a constant flow and amusing disconnection from reality progress with every scene, Inherent Vice is more of a sharp staccato-like nostalgic manifesto for an era of...
