Film Festival: Place M – Crossing the boundary between Photography and Film, 3/19(Fri)-22(Mon)
Since its establishment in 1987, Place M, a photography gallery located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, has served as a venue for the experience of photographic expression and experimentation. With the establishment of the film department and the first Place M Film Festival in 2019, the organizers continue to support the exploration of possibilities in both photography and film, encouraging the creation of boundary-pushing expression.
This year, due to the pandemic, the second Place M Film Festival will be held online. Its current director, Japanese filmmaker Yuka Sato, is excited to collaborate with the film distribution company Vidéographe, based in Montreal, Canada. Through this unique online environment they hope you enjoy their films created from diverse cultures and backgrounds as well as enlightening videos of the participating filmmakers as they discuss their work.
Here is already a preview of the films that will be shown on the opening day:
