■    The Tokyo International Film Festival Kicks Off!    ■
------------------------------------------------------------------

On October 20, the 25th Tokyo International Film Festival got off
to a memorable start.

On the street alongside Roppongi Hills, the main venue for the film
festival, a 250-meter green carpet was laid out - the longest carpet
the festival has ever had.

Mr.Roger Corman as president of the international competition jury,
Ms.Atsuko Maeda as TIFF Ambassador, and actress  Erica Linz of "Cirque
du Soleil: Worlds Away" and Cirque du soleil artists were on hand to
celebrate this momentous moment, celebrating a quarter-century for
the film festival.

The film festival will screen over 100 films in nine days. The films
will be shown under the following categories: The Competition category,
where the Tokyo Sakura Grand Prix will be awarded from the crop of
new talent and seasoned directors, Special Screenings, where upcoming
releases will be unveiled ahead of their scheduled Japan premiere;
World Cinema, which screens films that have received recognition in
other international film festivals; Winds of Asia-Middle East,
the category that boasts the largest number of films and viewers;
Japanese Eyes, which shows Japanese expression in all its variety;
and Natural TIFF, for which films with an underlying theme of
coexistence between humans and nature are selected. 

This year's head of jury will be Roger Corman, a living legend in
the world of independent film. We wait with bated breath to see which
films the producer of "Von Richthofen and Brown" (1971), "Piranha" (1978),
and "Monster (Humanoids from the Deep)" will select for the prizes.
