Screen your work in Tokyo & open Japanese nationwide distribution opportunities!
The Japanese film market is ever-expanding to include a national and international indie cinema marketplace. Our screenings take place at the UPLINK Factory Theatre in the Shibuya District, known commonly as the centre of Tokyo - a famous location in Tokyo for independent, counter-culture, and progressive thinking. Tokyo Lift-Off gets a lot of press coverage and is quickly becoming a highlight in the indie film calendar of Japan.
