The 29th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is just around the corner!

Known as a nation of “tolerant Islam,” Indonesia is made up of more than 10,000 islands and has regional cultural differences that make it the ultimate land of diversity. TIFF has been presenting outstanding Indonesian films, reflecting the nation’s diverse culture, since the 80’s. In this year’s focus, we will showcase 11 films, from the latest works by veterans to the unique, ambitious work of up-and-coming directors.

In the showcase, we will highlight three films by Teddy Soeriaatmadja, whose provocative and powerful work is internationally acclaimed. Along with Soeriaatmadja’s so-called Trilogy About Intimacy, the lineup also includes such rising female directors as Nia Dinata, a pioneer in LGBT films, and Kamila Andini of the Mirror Never Lies.
During the festival, guests from the films will attend the Q&A sessions and symposium.
The 29th TIFF will take place October 25 – November 3, 2016 at Roppongi Hills, EX Theater Roppongi and other venues in Tokyo.
