“Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival One-Day Spring Screening” has finished.
On 29th April, “TILGFF One-Day Spring Screening” finished with great success. This screening was held as part of “Tokyo Rainbow Pride Rainbow Week 2015”, and over 400 people came and enjoyed films at Tokyo Women’s Plaza Hall.
This was a special revival screening of popular films from our past festivals. It consisted of three films: “International Shorts”, a good little selection of films from various countries; “Mr. Angel”, a powerful documentary of FtM porn star Buck Angel; and “G.B.F”, a pop teen comedy.
Also, a Talk Event was held following “Mr. Angel”. It was hosted by Fumino Sugiyama, Co-representative of Tokyo Rainbow Pride, with special guest SECRET GUYZ, a Japanese FtM unit. They talked about their difficulties and their faith in being open as transsexuals working in show business (like Angel) with passion and great humor.
Thank you very much to all of those who came to support our festival.
We have now begun preparing for this year’s film festival. The 24th Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival will be held at two venues, Spiral Hall and Cinemart Shinjuku, on July11~July 20. We’re waiting to show you a selection of unique movies from all over the world and to host a variety of events.
We appreciate your continued support of the ever-growing Tokyo International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival!
