Like its counterparts in Venice and Toronto, Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is going ahead as planned this year, but it’s having to do things a little differently. There will still be the usual physical screenings and Q&A, but the regular competition sections have been ditched and more of the action will be shifting online.

The choice of festival ambassador also marks a break from tradition. While in recent years TIFF has been represented by the likes of Mayu Matsuoka, Alice Hirose and Kanna Hashimoto, in 2020 the task falls to Koji Yakusho.
