    Hibiya Cinema Festival will be back to town for the 2020 edition, to offer free outdoor movies in the pleasant autumn breeze.

    Hibiya Cinema Festival 2020

    The film festival held at Hibiya, central Tokyo, has grown immensely popular over the past two years, with its unique lineup of movies and themes.

    For the third time this year, Hibiya Cinema Festival will offer another opportunity to watch recent Japanese films with English subtitles, in particular those presented at this year’s Toronto Japanese Film Festival.

    Needless to say, Hibiya Cinema Festival 2020 will be organized with utmost care as to the measures against the coronavirus.

    So come join the festival – wearing a mask and keeping distance from others – and enjoy outdoor cinema.
