The 30th edition to the Focus on Asia Fukuoka International Film Festival officially closed.


The 30th edition to the Focus on Asia Fukuoka International Film Festival officially closed after our last film exhibition on September 24 (Thursday). Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we ended up this year with a film festival quite different from what we’ve been used to. Masks were required. Everything had to be disinfected and we had to distance theater seating. No guests were invited. No Q&A sessions and no symposiums were held. We only exhibited our film program. However, feedback from our audience revealed that they felt glad our film festival was held this year as well. This gave our entire staff the joy of having successfully organized a film festival where we could feel the warm reception of our film fans. Finally, we’d like to offer our sincerely gratitude to all who offered us their great support and cooperation.
