Yokohama × SSFF & ASIA Project
As one project that aims to facilitate synergy, the "Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia," and Academy Awards official international short film festival, will create a 10 to 15 minute short film on the theme "environmental futurist city." The finished film will be a tool for the city of Yokohama to explain its environmental futurist city concept and the underlying ideas behind it to its citizens.
Sabon Gift Short Film Project
As part of SABON Gift Short Film Project, we have collected lots of gift episodes on our website and at all SABON stores across Japan. Using this episode as an outline when creating the short film, its essence was captured using the image of a girl running forward and never looking back.
Short Film & Tokyo Project
To view Tokyo as an attractive travel destination from home and abroad, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will develop the branding strategy for the “Tokyo Brand”. SSFF & ASIA is one of the largest international short film festivals in Asia. Together, we will produce a short film named the “Short Film & Tokyo Project”, to help promote the “Tokyo Brand”.
