Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is pleased to announce that Disney’s latest animated film, “Big Hero 6,” has been selected as the opening film for the 27th TIFF. The live-action film, “PARASYTE,” which was adapted from the world-acclaimed Japanese comic, has been selected as the closing film.

“Big Hero 6” is the heartwarming adventure story of Hiro, a 14-year-old robotics prodigy, and a robot called Baymax. The film is set in the fictional metropolis of San Fransokyo (a combination of San Francisco and Tokyo).

“PARASYTE” is directed by one of Japan’s best filmmakers, Takashi Yamazaki (“Always – Sunset on 3rd Street” and “The Eternal Zero”). The film was adapted from a Japanese comic by Hitoshi Iwaaki that was published in the magazine ‘Gekkan Afternoon’ from 1990 to 1995 and sold 11 million copies.

This is an exciting year for TIFF. Not only we will be showing films in two additional festival venues—Nihonbashi and the Kabukiza theatre in Ginza—we also will be focusing on animation, the most popular content in Japan. The highlights of this year’s festival will be the world premieres of two blockbuster movies, one from Hollywood (“Big Hero 6”) and one from Japan (“PARASYTE”).

The 27th TIFF will be held October 23-31, 2014 at Roppongi Hills, TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi, and other venues in Tokyo.

 

Best regards,
