Today’s highlight : It’s “CHINA DAY” !

Japan Content Showcase 2019 has finally begun today!
Despite the rain, lots of participants lined up at the registration desk upon opening and lively business meetings were unfolded everywhere in the venue.
Today's highlight is of course “CHINA DAY”, this is the first attempt for JCS/TIFFCOM.

At the seminar in the morning, it was very impressed by the audience who listened to the detailed explanation of the investment project for the “Film Co-production Agreement between the Government of Japan and the Government of the People’s Republic of China” beginning with the introduction of “Shooting studio complex in Qingdao”.
Subsequently, the second seminar titled “Sino-foreign Communication of Film and Television” was overcrowded.
In particular, at the forum where Japanese film director Yuya Ishii and Chinese film director Yibai Zhang gave positive and interesting opinions about international collaboration films.

At “TIFFCOM・CHINA Welcome Party”, which ends the night of “CHINA DAY”, TIFFCOM CEO Yasushi Shiina took a toast, and many guests who color the world's content business chatted together. It was worthy of the first day for one of Asia's largest multi-content market.
