The Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is excited to unveil the key visual of the Muses of Japanese Cinema: Sakura ANDO, Yu AOI, Hikari MITSUSHIMA and Aoi MIYAZAKI. Photographed by the acclaimed photographer and film director Mika NINAGAWA, the theme of the visual is celebration and the unique and attractive characteristics of “Tokyo.”
 
In this year’s Japan Now section, we are highlighting the work of these four iconic actresses in honor of the powerful sparks they generate on screen, their collaborations with renowned directors and their increasing international stature as one of the special programs planned to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
 
In addition to the Muses of Japanese Cinema screenings, panel sessions with the actresses themselves, directors and other special guests will also be held.

*For the lineup of the Muses of Japanese Cinema in Japan Now section, please refer to the below.

 
One of four different key visuals will be introduced per week on the official website for the next four weeks. The photos will also be in the official program guide and displayed at the festival venue.
