TIFF Talk Salon
This is a series of special online talk sessions between audiences and the directors of this year’s TIFF selections who cannot come to Japan. We will accept questions from viewers during live-streaming events like Q & A sessions, which were always conducted in person in the past. We are preparing about 40 salons mainly for the films in the Tokyo Premiere 2020, World Focus and Youth (Teens) sections. TIFF Talk Salons will be held at separate dates and times from the screenings at the theaters. Audience members who purchased a film ticket will be able to join the salons through their PCs and/or mobile phones.
