Festivals aren’t easy to create and keep alive, but the Okinawa International Movie Festival is still going strong for it’s fifth year. Yoshimoto Kogyo has announced the programs of the 5th Okinawa International Movie Festival (OIMF). The festival will be held from Saturday March 23 to Saturday 30 at Okinawa Convention Center.
Joel Schumacher, director of “Batman Forever (1995)” and “The Phantom of the Opera (2004),” will perform as the president of jury for the movie festival. Other juries for the Laugh/Peace Category are actress Kaori Momoi, artist Demon Kakka and Canadian director Claude Gagnon.
Osaki started off the hour long conference, “Our employees are taking this as a miracle that we have come to announce the 5th event. New categories have become productive. All in all, we are delighted that people in Okinawa care about this event. We hope to send out variety of information from Okinawa to all over Asia”.
