Osaka Asian Film Festival 2022: From March 10th to March 20th, 2022, the 17th Osaka Asian Film Festival will take place in Osaka, Japan. The first element of the Osaka Asian Film Festival’s 2022 program has been announced. The hybrid festival, which runs through March online and on-site in Osaka, will be bookended by the opening night film YANAGAWA and the closing night film MISS OSAKA.
Osaka Asian Film Festival 2022 Overview
The 17th Osaka Asian Film Festival will begin and end with works by overseas directors, set in Japan and collaborated with leading filmmakers in the Japanese film industry. Introducing the work of contemporary filmmakers who actively interact and work across established boundaries such as nationality, nationality, and ethnicity was one of the themes that the Osaka Asian Film Festival has been actively working on. As an extension of that, this film festival will start and end.
In addition, this film festival has been proactively working to disseminate Japanese films from Osaka to the world. This time, as part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, commissioned project “Reiwa 3rd Year Japanese Culture Overseas Transmission Promotion Project (International Film Festival Implementation Promotion Project)”, we will further strengthen our efforts. Now, we carefully select the talents that should be known to the world most and introduce and look back on their latest work. Please pay attention to this attempt as it will be screened not only in movie theaters but also online, with special booklets in both Japanese and English, and OAFF official YouTube channel videos.
For regular customers, the first thing that catches the eye in this year’s lineup may be the dramatic increase in short stories. In fact, what surprised me most during the selection process was the short story of a good harvest. I hope you can share that surprise at the movie theater.
Please enjoy the 17th Osaka Asian Film Festival, which will be held with the largest number of exhibitions in the history of this film festival, from the beginning to the end.
The theme is from Osaka All over Japan and to Asia
By providing citizens with excellent opportunities to watch Asian movies and supporting the promotion of video production activities in Osaka, we will strive to develop and interact with human resources, revitalize the Osaka economic zone, and improve the attractiveness of the city.
An open platform that promotes “Gateway Osaka for Asian Films” to the world and contributes to the development of Osaka with interests from various perspectives, from culture, art, and education to tourism and economics, and from Osaka to Asia. Position the film festival as.
This year, which marks the 17th time, we will screen the latest Asian films and hold various programs under the programming director Sozo Teruzo. Continuing from last year, this year, in addition to the annual screen screenings, we will focus on the works that should be known to the world now among the works that were screened at the Osaka Asian Film Festival in the past, “Osaka Asian Online Theater”. Will be screened online as. As the situation surrounding movie watching changes due to the Corona disaster, we will convey the charm of movie culture and Asian movies to a wider range of people.
