Conversation Series at Asia Lounge announced


Conversation Series at Asia Lounge Co-presented by The Japan Foundation Asia Center & Tokyo International Film Festival

Full Lineup and Program Schedule Announced, with Exciting Guests Appearing Physically and Online

CHANG Chen and KORE-EDA Hirokazu, BONG Joon Ho and HOSODA Mamoru and more

The Japan Foundation and the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is pleased to announce the lineup of guests for the second year of the Conversation Series at Asia Lounge, selected by a committee which was once again advised by Palme d’Or winner KORE-EDA Hirokazu*. Acclaimed directors and actors from a variety of countries and regions in Asia and beyond will gather at the Asia Lounge to chat with their Japanese counterparts as part of the 34th TIFF, to be held from October 30 to November 8.


The full lineup and program schedule are available on TIFF’s official website, and registration is now open:

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Japan Foundation and TIFF were again limited in their ability to invite guests from overseas, and to achieve their original goal of making Asia Lounge a place where filmmakers can interact and attend talk sessions in person. However, we are pleased that actress Isabelle Huppert and filmmaker Kamila Andini will be able to join us physically for the 34th TIFF and Asia Lounge. Please be sure to register early. We look forward to seeing you at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.
