Comment from SIFF:
Shanghai and Tokyo are both Asian big cities, we both have the responsibilities to support Asian filmmakers. We all know European film festivals have attracted most of the filmmakers’ attention, but if we give Asian films full recognition and encouragement, at least we can win the trust of Asian filmmakers. Hope the collaboration can work out, and Japanese films select SIFF to do their promotion, attend competition, likewise Chinese films choose TIFF.
