Tokyo Gemstone Award
In keeping with our vision of “cultivating a future for film,” the Tokyo International Film Festival established the Tokyo Gemstone Award for acting last year. It will be given to a handful of up-and-coming actors and actresses whose talent is deemed worthy of international recognition. By spotlighting these gemstones of raw talent, we hope to help them further shine. Young actors and actresses in all films presented at the festival will be eligible for the award. The Tokyo International Film Festival Secretariat will select actors and/or actresses not only from Japan, but around the world.
