Tokyo International Film Festival is reviving the Kurosawa Akira Award, given to filmmakers for contributions to global cinema






Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is also coming back after the pandemic. It will run  Oct. 24-Nov. 2 this year. Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) will open with a full red carpet for the first time in three years as the event looks to bounce back from two relatively subdued editions held during the pandemic.The most happy news announced by Fest chairman Hiroyasu Ando is that TIFF will also revive the Kurosawa Akira Award, given to filmmakers for contributions to global cinema, after a hiatus of 14 years. Previous recipients include Steven Spielberg, Yamada Yoji and Chen Kaige.Kurosawa is “not only Japan’s most famous filmmaker,” but also “a symbol of the connections between the film industries of Japan and the rest of the world,” said Ando, explaining why the award had been revived. Jury president Julie Taymor will be joined by Korean actress Shim Eun-kyung, Portuguese director Joao Pedro Rodrigues, France’s Marie-Christine de Navacelle and local cinematographer Katsumi Yanagijima.

 The gala selection will feature 16 movies from around the globe, including the Japanese premieres of Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling and David O. Russell’s Amsterdam, along with the previously announced opener of Takahisa Zeze’s Fragments of the Last Will and closing film Oliver Hermanus’ Living.
