TIFFCOM Market to Change Tokyo Venue This Year
Exhibition hall in Tokyo Bay to be bigger and have accommodation on-site.
TOKYO – TIFFCOM, the contents market of the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF), will move location this year from its Roppongi Hills venue to the Grand Pacific Le Daiba hotel in the Odaiba district on Tokyo Bay.
According to organizers, the move is motivated by space restrictions at Roppongi Hills and difficulties in securing the venue for this year.
A TIFFCOM spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that it hadn’t been decided yet whether this was a permanent move or whether the market would return to its usual venue next year.
As well as 20 percent more space, the exhibition hall underneath the hotel will feature screening rooms and seminar spaces all on the same floor, providing a “one-stop marketplace” and allowing the market to grow further.
A shuttle bus will run between Odaiba and Roppongi Hills, though accommodation for exhibitors and visitors will be provided in the hotel above the new market venue.
The market will take place from Oct. 23 to 25, while the festival will run from Oct, 20 to 28 at its regular Roppongi Hills venue.
