In order to promote Tokyo both in Japan and overseas, “Cinema Sports” project was established.

The aim of the project is to produce and promote a short film with elements of major international sports events that are taking place in Tokyo since 2019 to 2020.

The short films which will be introduced to both domestic and international audience will be directed by past award wininig filmmakers from our festival, not only to raise their degree of recognition, but also to incubate young and aspiring filmmakers.

The short film will be premiered at SSFF & ASIA, as well as other festivals inside and outside of Japan. Additionally, its promotional content will be used to attract attention and deliver messages about the attraction of Tokyo.

Marunouchi Area

Marunouchi Area Chiyoda

This area is located between the Imperial Palace Gaien and Tokyo Station, and has developed into an office district with Otemachi adjacent to the north centering around Tokyo Station. Besides commercial facilities and chic boutiques, the area is known as the financial and economic centers of Japan with many buildings of major banks and large corporations. Since there are almost no houses such as condominiums or shops that are open all night, the difference between the daytime population and the nighttime population is quite extreme.
