JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles and Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & Asia) have partnered to showcase Short Shorts Film Festival in Hollywood on January 17, 2019. The free one-day film festival will bring together premier film talent from Japan, including Cannes Film Festival judge Naomi Kawase and actor and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) member Tetsuya Bessho, at the historic TCL Chinese 6 Theatres. The two-part program aims to bring a sense of intrigue and cultural discovery to festival attendees through the art of short contemporary visual storytelling.
The festival opens with Master Class with Naomi Kawase: The Possibilities of Film, as celebrated Japanese female director Naomi Kawase presents her unique insight on the future of film and explores the short film format, followed by a discussion with Akira Mizuta Lippit, the Vice Dean and Professor of School of Cinematic Arts and Division of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Southern California. This special program offers a rare classroom-like environment in a theatre, as it invites the audience to participate in a live dialogue with the director and is also set as the U.S. premier of her film Parallel World (2017).
The Short Shorts Film Festival in Hollywood film screening will follow as it features the U.S. premier of Daishi Matsunaga’s “Canaria” (2018); “Benjamin’s Last Day at Katong Swimming Complex” (2017) by Yee Wei Chai, 2018 SSFF & Asia’s Grand Prix George Lucas Award winner; “Lies” (2015) by Naomi Kawase; and “The Human Face” (2017) by Aline Pimentel, multiple award-winning short documentary about Kazuhiro Tsuji, the first person of Japanese and Asian descent to win the Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar at the 2018 Academy Awards and starring film director Guillermo Del Toro, Oscar-winning artist Kazuhiro Tsuji, actor Gary Oldman, and artist Chet Zar. The program will be accompanied by introductions made by special guests representing respective films.
SSFA & Asia has grown exponentially since it was established to promote short films to the Japanese audience in 1999. The festival first debuted outside of Asia in Hollywood in 2002, and JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles is pleased to bring this festival back with its founder, Tetsuya Bessho, to provide an interactive platform to share Japanese culture through the form of short films.
