Nara International Film Festival
NARAtive in TOKYO NODE: Special screenings of NARAtive films that connect present to future and Nara to the world

Everyone involved in filmmaking shines in some way. Smiles start to appear. It proves that your heart is full. The crew members, actors, and local people who at first didn’t know each other find a connection. A circle of human interactions is born there, and many find happiness. This may be what we need in present Japan… I want to spread happiness in Japan and I believe filmmaking brings us happiness. A completed film is a precious asset that can be passed down from generation to generation. The heart of these films are rooted in the brilliance of the people in each region where NARAtive was created. I created this NARAtive filmmaking project from my hometown of Nara, and the heart of the films are rooted in the brilliance of the people in each region where NARAtive was created.
