Kinotayo - Showcase of 7th Japanese art festival in France

Kinotayo - Showcase of 7th Japanese art festival in France

A unique festival dedicated to the promotion of contemporary Japanese films in France, Kinotayo has aimed to strengthen cultural ties between the two countries since 2006. The festival is partnered by many notable public and private institutions, such as the Hotel Sezz Paris which has supported this event since 2012.  

The founding of Kinotayo

Kinotayo festival was born from an interest that the French and Japanese have had in each other’s cultures for centuries. This tradition of sharing art continues with Kinotayo’s dedication to the promotion of contemporary film, and is the reason for many new films being presented in France during the course of the festival. Beyond meetings and cultural exchanges, Kinotayo is also a springboard for the promotion of Japanese films in France. This year, the festival will feature a selection of eighteen new and recent films that reflect the diversity and richness of Japanese culture.
