About TVF

The festival is an international video competition sponsored by Victor Company of Japan.
The festival was started in 1978.
52,517 video works from 110 countries had been submitted by professionals and amateurs alike consideration for this international award. The aim of the festival was to promote video software production as one way to enjoy video technology, as well as to introduce creative new works.

The only requirement for a work to be accepted is that it be shot with a video camera and be no longer than 20 minutes. Any theme can be addressed. Past entries have dealt with personal opinions and experience, dreams, daily life and creation.
They have aroused sympathy and left many touching impressions. We try to bestow the top prize to the most superb work as well as foster an environment where people and cultures can carry on exchanges through film media.
