SSFF & ASIA will join the “Ibaraki Short Film A wards,” sponsored by the province of Ibaraki, to host its awards ceremony and screening of nominated films. This award was established to celebrate and spread through film the charms of Ibaraki, with its scenery, culture, and cuisine, and to promote screen tourism. Since this past June when we opened our general submissions call, we have received 86 films. In addition to the festival, there will be special facilities like libraries with information on other locales. We are also planning the delivery and screening of the Ibakira TV.
