The Japan Foundation will present the “Conversation Series at Asia Lounge”, as part of the 34th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF). This year’s Conversation Series, following the 2020 series, will be advised by a committee led by filmmaker KORE-EDA Hirokazu. Directors and actors from various countries and regions in Asia and beyond will gather at the Asia Lounge to engage in discussion with their Japanese counterparts.

We are delighted to announce our lineup of guest speakers and program schedule. Registration for our Zoom webinar is now open. Among our speakers, Isabelle HUPPERT (actress) and Kamila ANDINI (film director) are planning to join us in Japan. We aim to invite as many of our international guests as possible to Japan and make Asia Lounge a venue for real-life conversations and exchanges between film professionals. We welcome on-site interviews at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.
