Tokyo Filmex 2013 - Full Lineup Announced

This Saturday sees the start of the Tokyo Filmex 2013 Festival. The festival concentrates on promoting works by young filmmakers from across Asia in its Competition Section while the Special Screenings offer ten new films from around the world.

Every year Filmex hosts a couple of interesting Special Programs, and this year they are focusing on French director Jean Gremillon, showing three of his films from the late thirties and early forties, and Japanese auteur Nakamura Noboru. It is Nakamura's centennial anniversary and three of his films will be shown with newly commissioned English subtitled prints to celebrate. The director's 1963 film Twin Sisters of Kyoto and 1967's Portrait of Chieko were both nominated for Best Foreign Language Academy Awards.
