Important note on COVID-19

We would like to inform you that there will be no cancellation or postponement of our Festivals operations for this COVID 19 issue. The festival team along with Honorable juries remain committed to continuing the festival operations as per the prevailing schedule and process.
All our screening events will remain currently postponed due to prevailing restrictions and will be scheduled for the first safe opportunity, once this current situation is over.


When you make an indie film, you put your blood, sweat, and tears into it. Not to mention, you deduct from your bank account. No one understands this better than us. And we're here to honor your passion, commitment, and vision.
So many people give up on their dreams, never daring to try to make them come true. You're one of the brave few to take a huge step and actually do that. No film is perfect but you had the guts to reach for the stars and we want to applaud your success.
Twilight Tokyo Film Festival is an online festival.

TTFF is open to any film completed after January 1, 2000, regardless of content, subject, or origin. Submitting your film to the TTFF is not a guarantee of selection. All the official selection, nominees, and winners will be listed on our website permanently. All the winning films will receive a trophy, award, or certificate. Please note that we do not offer application fee waivers. We treat every filmmaker equally.
1. Submissions must be accompanied by the applicable submission fee PER ENTRY and a completed online entry form. All films must be in English or have English subtitles at the time submitted.
2. Films must be submitted as an online streaming video via a participating submission platform (WFCN), a password-protected streaming URL (please test before sending).
3. In the event of a password change or link change after submitting, you must email the Festival immediately with that change so we may update your record. If the Festival is not notified of the change and the link is found to be inactive or the password to be incorrect, the submission may be deemed ineligible.
4. The festival has no obligation (other than as stated in these rules or on our website) to disclose any of the following information: i) identities of screeners or judges; ii) notes, feedback, or information relating to the submitted project; and/or iii) details regarding the submission review or selection process.
5. The film submitted to the TTFF for a particular month can be re-submitted at any time for a second chance, considering that we have different judges' panels for each season.
6. A director/producer may submit more than one film in a category and more than one category at a time.
7. A nominee will be privately screened for the TTFF judging panel, and will not be screened initially to the public.
8. “Best” films of each category will receive a laurel & certificate.
9. A filmmaker’s submission fee will not be reimbursed if they decide to withdraw their submission. All entry fees are non-refundable.
10. We require an official trailer or poster, a synopsis, and a link to your film. Please select the correct category while submitting to avoid disqualification. We reserve the right to re-assign films to the appropriate category.

  • Kon'nichiwa, Shalom and hello to all, I am so honoured to be a part of this wonderful film festival celebrating the power of love in the arts. Thank you also kindly for the winner awards you gave to both my films, for my film TreeBirth, and for my film Lucid... I am so moved, touched thrilled! On a personal note, I always had a dream and planed to visit Japan, right before Covid, so now it is still on hold, yet at least my works are shown in Tokyol!
