The directors include Shinji Aoyama, Kazuki Omori, Masahiro Kobayashi, Yoichi Sai, and Yoshishige Yoshida, and the actors include Akira Takarada, Kunie Tanaka, Shinichi Chiba, and Moeko Ezawa, as well as costume designers Hanae Mori and Emi Wada. Setsu Sugihara, Keiko Morita, screenwriters Kaoruko Okano and Keiko Nobumoto.
It will be a large-scale special screening with a total of 85 works in a wide range of genres, from feature films to documentaries and animations. We look forward to seeing you there.
