TIFFCOM is focusing on the “Producing” market. The Tokyo GapFinancing Market (TGFM), which started three years ago, will be held as a physical event for the first time.

In recent years, there has also been a rise in the number of exhibitors that not only handle the sale of completed content but negotiate business opportunities on IP (Intellectual Property) rights and book adaptations.

By boosting the number of meetings related to film, animation, game, and other audio-visual contents, TIFFCOM, as the marketplace leveraging business on visual entertainment, will continue to grow and bring more achievements.

This year, 15 have been selected that include Asian and/or Japanese elements. The new projects are: Ming Jin Woo, Aditya Assarat, as well as those of Japanese directors, Yukihiko Tsutsumi, Kazuya Shiraishi, Daigo Matsui, and Junya Okabe.

Furthermore, there is also a new themed titled “Tokyo Story Market” specializing in business negotiations for film and audiovisual adaptations of original works (stories) including manga (Japanese comics) and novels.

Participating Japanese publishers include Kadokawa, Kodansha, Shueisha and Shogakukan.
