TOKYO FILMeX Organizing
TOKYO FILMeX Organizing Committee was founded in August 2000, opening for business at 5-5-11 Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tokyo. The Committee held the 1st TOKYO FILMeX／TOKYO FILMeX 2000 during December 18-24 that year at Le Theatre GINZA, Tokyo and other venues. The 2nd TOKYO FILMeX took place in 2001 over November 18-26 at Yurakucho Asahi Hall, Tokyo and other venues. In November 2002, the TOKYO FILMeX Organizing Committee (Specified Non-profit Organization) was formed. After making the transition from a private organization, the group held the 3rd TOKYO FILMeX／TOKYO FILMeX 2002 during December 1-8 at Yurakucho Asahi Hall, Tokyo, and other venues, and the 4th TOKYO FILMeX／TOKYO FILMeX 2003 from November 22-30, also at Yurakucho Asahi Hall, Tokyo, and other venues. Thereafter and up until 2010, the group held the nine-day, late-November festival a total of 11 times, and continues to organize the event today.
•In June 2004, the group helped plan and run The Japan Foundation event “Japanese Film Screening (with English subtitles)” in Tokyo, an event it was involved in 9 times until June 2007.
•In March 2008, the group held a children’s workshop, “Movie Time,” as part of its education promotion program (jointly organized with Research Institute for Digital Media and Content, Keio University, at Keio University Mita Campus, Tokyo). The workshop was held for a second time in March 2009 the following year, and the third event was held the year after that in March 2010.
•In November 2010, as part of Tokyo Culture Creation Project the group co-organized the “Japanese Films Promotion Project” and “Next Masters Tokyo 2010” with Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo Culture Creation Project Office (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture).
