During the 6 days of the 19th TOKYO FILMeX held from November 19-24, 2018, the talent development and networking platform “Talents Tokyo 2018” (TT2018) will be conducted under the supervision of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Arts Council Tokyo, the Japan Foundation Asia Center and the Talents Tokyo Organizing Committee (TOKYO FILMeX), and in cooperation with Berlinale Talents.
TT2018 brings together 15 upcoming promising filmmakers and producers. Each participant will have opportunity to present his/her own project.
The Talents Tokyo aims to inspire promising filmmakers to develop their voices and become the “Next Masters”.
From 2011 to 2013, the filmmaker development project “Talent Campus Tokyo”, which was previously called “Next Masters Tokyo” in 2010, has been run, and in 2014 the program was reformed as “Talents Tokyo”.
The same year, TT organizers decided to start a new initiative to support alumni from these events by providing grants from (a) Project Development Fund and (b) International Promotion Fund.
Today we announce this year’s selected projects. Talents Tokyo will award a Project Development Fund grants of up to 1 million JPY or an International Promotion Fund grant of up to 500,000 JPY to the selected projects.
