This month the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) announced it will make partnerships with different organizations and cultural events to spread their web and promote Japanese culture.
The festival organizers have recently announced a series of changes in the festival with the objective to spread their web of influence with different organizations and cultural events. This will allow the festival to promote the Japanese culture.
Maybe the most notorious change is the redesign of the festival logo. The new logo shows a big black “T” with small dots on both sides resembling a film stock. In addition the festival announced the next partnerships:
Tokyo Drama Award 2014
The TIFF will cooperate with the Tokyo Drama Award ceremony where people, as Japanese, select the attractive TV dramas that they want to introduce to the world.
World Cosplay Summit
Cosplayers from 22 countries from around the world will participate in the Tokyo International Film Festival for the first time.
