TJFF-2015_Poster_13x20_Print-1-665x1024

TORONTO JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL 2015
http://jccc.on.ca/torontojff/

Now in its 4th year, the Toronto Japanese Film Festival showcases the finest Japanese films that have been recognized for excellence by Japanese audiences and critics, international film festival audiences and/or the Japanese Film Academy. Programming addresses popular genres such as historical (samurai) jidaigeki, contemporary dramas, comedies and action, literary adaptations, children’s and anime films. We also try to show films recommended by the community as those they would like to share with Canadians. All films are North American, Canadian or Toronto premieres.

The Toronto Japanese Film Festival’s mandate has been carefully aligned with that of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. In the 52 years since the opening of the JCCC, film has been an important tool in creating friendship, understanding and exchange between the Japanese and broader Canadian communities. Tickets sales from the festival also help to drive our heritage programming which shares the important lessons of cultural acceptance and human rights implicit in the Japanese Canadian experience, with all Canadians.

Our first three years attracted large crowds, a broad demographic from all over the city and exit surveys indicating that audiences genuinely enjoyed the films. With the lectures, receptions, gallery exhibitions and performances that were part of the two-week festival, our visitors numbered in the tens of thousands.

For our 2015 festival, we have worked hard to find a wide range of films that represent the broad spectrum of great film created in Japan. We have an exciting line-up of films this year; we invite you to enjoy yourselves and thank you for being part of this year’s festival.

トロント日本映画祭(トロントJFF)は今年で4回目を迎えます。 トロントJFFでは日本で観客や映画評論家から高い評価を得た作品、また海外の映画祭や日本アカデミー賞などで受賞するなど、話題の作品を上映します。殆どの作品は北米、カナダあるいはトロントプレミアとなります。トロントJFFでは、日本映画を皆様に紹介するだけではなく、作品を通して日本文化に触れ、それが友好を広げるきっかけになればと思っています。それはトロントJFFを主催する日系文化会館の使命とも重なります。会館創立52周年の今年、トロントJFFの売り上げの一部は会館のヘリテージプログラムの為に利用される予定です。

トロントJFFでは、毎回上映作品の吟味に最善を尽くしています。その結果、予想以上の観客動員数を記録し、どの作品も非常に好評を得ています。今年の第4回トロントJFFでも、子供からお年寄りまで楽しめるように、時代劇から現代ドラマ、コメディ、アニメーション、ドキュメンタリーなど様々な分野から選出しました。今年も皆様の御来場を心よりお待ちしております。
