An Auto film festa is born.

Media Partner


We are hold an Automobile film festival in Japan and information in Japanese and English.

Automobiles are the primary industry in Japan, and it is a unique market with many global automobile manufacturers and brands. However, we ignored culture and art related to automobiles.
Therefore, it is necessary to increase the value of videos from the viewpoint of automobile-related culture and art.

Also, many of the existing film festivals are not well known to the general public, which is a hurdle for both participants and spectators.

We will make it possible for as many people as possible to participate in film festivals.
Using a film festival format, we will play a part in automobile culture and promote the exchange of global video creators with Japan as the starting point.
