The 6th Annual Toronto Japanese Short Film Festival

The 6th Annual Toronto Japanese Short Film Festival is being held from October 7 - 10, 2007 at Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue @ St. George Street, one block south of Bloor.

This year, we are holding an Opening Gala on Tuesday, the 7th of October. The Gala Screening begins at 7:00pm and features the work of Hiroyuki Nakano, whose name you may recognize from his stylish feature film “SF Samurai Fiction”. This program presents 4 of his short films, including the 2006 Cannes-winning film “IRON” and 3 international-premiere presentations. It is thus the first time that this collection of Nakano ’s films is being screened together in one program.

After the films, we invite you to join us for food and drink at the Opening Gala party at Victory Cafe (581Markham St., just behind Honest Ed ’s), beginning at 8:30pm. Asahi Beer, Otsumami (Snack Food) & a Goody bag are included with your Opening Gala Ticket! Please share this special evening with us in celebration of the sixth anniversary of the Toronto Japanese Short Film Festival.
