Four-day event in Ikebukuro and Shibuya!

Japan Content Showcase 2017 will be held in Ikebukuro (TIFFCOM/TIAF) and Shibuya (TIMM) for the film, music, animation, and multi-content market.

Main venue
TIFFCOM/TIAF: Sunshine City Convention Center
October 24–26, 2017 (Tuesday–Thursday)

TIMM: Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu
(Only the TIMM live events will be held on October 25)

Venue details

This year marks the fourteenth TIFFCOM. Starting in 2017,we will be moving to Sunshine City in Ikebukuro and holding the event across two venues along with the one in Shibuya. Ikebukuro is located in Toshima City, which is actively building a presence as an international city of arts and culture. Municipal initiatives include urban redevelopment plans for the former ward office site and the area around Ikebukuro Station,as well as the creation of “cultural hotspots”—such as eight theater locations by 2020. Given Toshima’s efforts, we felt that Ikebukuro would make the perfect location to hold TIFFCOM, which draws companies from a variety of content-related sectors—from film and TV to animation, printed media, and more.

We’ll be showcasing more of Ikebukuro’s great features in our newsletter.

Ikebukuro: The mecca of anime

Japan’s manga and anime culture has gained fans across the world, and is the epitome of the “cool Japan” aesthetic. In March 2017, Japan celebrated one hundred years of anime tradition in the area around Ikebukuro Station with the Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2017, one of the world’s premier international anime film festivals. The competition entries included 656 films by those hailing from 55 countries around the world. Ikebukuro has long been a place for anime fans to gather, earning it a reputation among them as “the mecca of anime”.
