Festival Outline

From Osaka to All Asia!

The Osaka Asian Film Festival (OAFF) aims to facilitate human resources development and exchange, to invigorate the Osaka economy, and to increase the city’s appeal, through providing opportunities to watch excellent Asian films, supporting filmmaking in Osaka and attracting filmmakers from Asian countries and regions to Osaka.

Promoting Osaka worldwide as a gateway city for Asian films, and engaging with many people from the fields of culture, art, education, tourism and business, from Osaka and all of Asia, OAFF works as an open platform to contribute to the development of Osaka and cinema.

Marking its 19th edition this year, OAFF, under programming director TERUOKA Sozo (暉峻創三), will again select high-quality Asian films.

The Competition section, which receives increased recognition every year, will again select films previously unreleased in Japan.

The Indie Forum section, special programs and other sections will also feature a wide variety of excellent Asian films.
