New Arigatō Award to Go to Five Remarkable Contributors to the Film Industry
October 14, 2015
Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) today announced that it has selected five recipients for its new ARIGATŌ (Thank You) Award, honoring their remarkable contributions to the Japanese film industry. We have launched this new award with the expectation that these five stalwarts of Japanese film will continue to be successful and make further contributions to the industry, as well as to increase their international recognition. We have called the award “ArigatŌ” because the word is recognized globally.
The award conveys our appreciation to film stalwarts who are exceptionally talented and have widely supported the film industry.
