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.
