TIFF has promoted various activities under the theme of “Ecology” for five years since its 21st edition. We will maintain this theme and host a number of activities concerned with global environmental protection.
Green Carpet Welcome
As a symbol of ecology, the Green Carpet will be rolled out again this year. The carpet is made in cooperation with Coca-Cola (Japan) Company Limited and TEIJIN LIMITED, from recycled plastic bottles to reduce the burden on the environment.
TIFF will carry out a charity drive again this year at the main venues and event sites during the festival. We will also hold a charity auction and donate the proceeds to the Green Tokyo Fundraising Campaign, Kinoshita Forest, and Cinema Yell Tohoku, which promotes screening activities in the disaster stricken area of Tohoku.
Green Carpet Area
As in previous years, TIFF will feature the Green Carpet Area, with cooperation from sponsors. The Green Carpet and green activities by the sponsor companies will be introduced there.
TIFF began using ticket board’s mobile ticketing service last year. With this service, reservation, payment, mobile ticket downloading and entrance to theaters are all available through mobile phone, smartphone and others.
