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 Honourable juries remain committed to continuing the festival operations as per 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 honour 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.

  • Our film "Death Offers Life - last moments of Vincent Van Gogh" got 3 awards and it's a great encouragement for our entire team. Japan being a dear friend of India makes this doubly sweet.
