Asian Cinema Selection (6th-7th November, 2010)
Posted October 25th, 2010 - 1:14 am by from Tokyo, Japan (Permalink)
Dear all,

As part of the Tokyo Asian Month series of events, the "ASIAN CINEMA SELECTION" will present FREE screenings of films from across Asia. It will also feature some short films that were screened at the Short Shorts Film Festival back in June. This event will be held at Tocho (the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office complex) during the weekend of 6th - 7th November. Here's the link to the official website:

Simultaneously, during the film event, Tocho will host an event called the Asian Network of Major 21 Cities exhibition, showcasing the best of different cultures in Asia. There will be some live performances (from India, Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, Thailand, etc.), martial-arts demonstrations (muay thai, taekwondo, etc.), food stands and so on. Again for details, please refer to the link below:

I'm planning on going there at around lunchtime on 7th November, to sample some food and check out some live performances before going to the short film screenings (90 min) at 15:15 and the screening of a Thail film called "Mysterious Object at Noon" (80 min) at 17:45.

Please let me know if anyone is interested in joining!

Regards,
Reiji

Hey guys!

Since some of you are interested, I decided to create an event page. Please let me know your attendance on the event page, which you can access by following the link:

http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=94830

Here are the details of the event...
Date: Sunday, 7th November, 2010
Time: 13:30 or 1:30PM
Place: in front of the main entrance of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly Building
Note: From 13:30 to 15:15, I plan on chilling at an Asian-themed festival, where one will find Asian food stands and some live performances. At 15:15, there will be a screening of some short films from different countries in Asia. And at 17:45, I plan on watching a Thai film called "Mysterious Object at Noon". After these screenings, we can head out for a dinner together, but this is optional.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Greetings,
Reiji
