SSFF & ASIA 2018 x Tokyo Cinema Ensemble
At the beginning of 2016, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, in association with the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & Asia), Asia’s biggest international short film festival, initiated a project to showcase Tokyo’s various charms as part of plans to make people inside and outside the country want to visit Tokyo. This project makes use of the talented directors who have participated at SSFF & Asia, to spread the appeal of Tokyo far and wide, at home and abroad, as well as to help nurture young filmmakers.
“Tokyo Cinema Ensemble” is a promotional collage video of Tokyo, filmed and edited with the fresh and unique vision of foreign filmmakers, who are recommended by SSFF & ASIA. This is the third installment of the project. “Morning Tokyo”, “Day Tokyo” and “Night Tokyo” were chosen as themes, with images of different quarters and areas of Tokyo.
