Hors Pistes Tokyo 2014 Film Festival Opens 6/7-22

Exciting 3-week program of 36 films

Tokyo, Japan, June 6th 2014

The event is a companion to the annual Hors Pistes festival created by Centre Pompidou in Paris.

The Centre gives the Japanese festival not only the backing and name recognition of a well-known cultural institution, but also the chance to share some of the fine films from the Paris festival.

“With Hors Pistes Tokyo, the idea is to bring content that has never been seen in Japan before,” Antonin Gaultier, executive director of the festival, said. “We are very, very flexible about what we show, and I think that is why people are so interested. There is a connection between all different kinds of content –animation, CG, short films, documentaries, and more.”

In addition to its diverse range of content, Hors Pistes Tokyo’s focus is different from other film festivals.

“There is no competition. A lot of film festivals, including those in Japan, are about prizes,competition, and the award at the end,” Gaultier said. “We are trying to connect in a different way; people can actually talk and engage with the directors and share what they think about the festival.

“Curation is very important. This year we have a selection of films about the city – urban discoveries. We are bringing some new directors from Europe and connecting them with old films, these Japanese underground films from the 70s that are about Tokyo and are not so well known.

“It should be our responsibility as a festival to show the audience that it is not just about a random collection of works,” Gaultier said. “We owe the audience to engage with the content and make it their own.”

Now in its fourth year, Hors Pistes Tokyo looks to reach its largest audience ever and to connect films and the audience in ways that it has never done before, through talks, parties and events.

Hors Pistes begins on June 7 and runs until June 22.
