【Also be sure to check out the International Children’s Art Exhibition】

Thanks to support from the Biiku Bunka Kyokai Art Education Foundation, this year’s International Children’s Art Exhibition will take place at the same time as the film festival. This year marks the 52nd anniversary since the first International Children’s Art Exhibition took place at the World Exposition held in Osaka in 1970.

Each year about 50,000 entries from Japan as well as some 50,000 entries from over 40 different countries and regions worldwide (including Japanese schools) are received from children aged 3 to 15 for a total of over 100,000 submissions altogether. This year’s exhibit will include pieces from children from Myanmar, Ukraine and more on display in front of the Asian Art Museum Hall and the nearby Amamizu Gallery, so be sure to check them out before or after the film.
