Seminar Timetable Is Now Open!


Messages from three organizations

Yasushi Shiina
CEO, TIFFCOM & Japan Content Showcase

TIFFCOM has grown and, for this reason, we have selected Ikebukuro as our venue this year. The event will be held in a much bigger space, with the number of exhibition booths increasing drastically. There is sufficient space for various events. The quality and quantity of seminars have increased too. This year’s focal theme is Intellectual Property (IP). In this connection, we will organize many seminars and events related to IP and create an IP-related business platform. Today, content moves freely across borders and as the Asian market, starting with China, continues to expand, Japanese content is attracting more interest than before. Being the representative marketplace for Film and TV in Asia, TIFFCOM’s role, too, is constantly growing in importance. We will leverage the cultural infrastructure of Ikebukuro, an area with high affinity for content, to continue organizing various related events moving forward. Please watch for the future of JAPAN CONTENT SHOWCASE and TIFFCOM as they take on this new stage. Begin with a visit to our event venue. You are sure to discover a door leading to global business opportunities. We look forward to seeing you there.

Yutaka Goto
Chairman, Foundation for Promotion of Music Industry and Culture

The 14th Tokyo International Music Market (14thTIMM) is celebrating its fifth year as a part of JAPAN CONTENT SHOWCASE. Its main venue will be in Shibuya for a second time, following last year. During this period, we have been active in the international music market with the support of all our partners. Many artists are expanding their activities overseas with the help of TIMM using individual business talk sessions and active negotiations through Showcase Live and other events. The business seminars, too, receive high praise from the participants every year. This year, too, we will focus on the theme that interests us most and invite unique speakers, holding eight seminars in two days, including joint events with partner organizations. We hope that a larger number of participants will join the event and leverage it as a place to obtain ready-to-use hints for work as well as a platform to increase and widen their knowledge for the future. We look forward to your visit. See you at the venue!

Kazuko Ishikawa
President, The Association of Japanese Animations

The Association of Japanese Animations (AJA), mainly consisting of animation studios, was established with the aim to preserve and cultivate the animation culture Japan is proud of and promote the animation industry to the world. Working together with the member companies, AJA, the sole organization representing the Japanese animation industry, is engaged in various activities directed toward the development of animation. Japanese animation is supported by a wide range of people, from children to families, film buffs as well as core fans. It is also gaining popularity across the globe as a cultural industry unique to Japan. The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Japanese animation. On this important occasion, we are determined to work positively toward expanding Japanese animation to overseas markets for further growth of the animation industry, with our eyes set on the next 100 years, for all domestic and foreign buyers who visit JAPAN CONTENT SHOWCASE and all exhibitors who take part in it. This will be done in concert with the Cool Japan strategy of the Japanese government. Please visit us at the JAPAN CONTENT SHOWCASE 2017.
