Citizen's Videos Have Witenessed the Times

Tokyo Video Festival (TVF) has inscribed the history of the past about 30 years as an annual festival of citizen's video. In TVF history, citizen's videos have depicted personal life and affairs, curiosity about and impressions of the object of shooting, thinking and opinions about social and international events, and so forth, with great diversity of images. It's just as if the camcorder itself feels the wind of the times like a living thing. TVF has made its 30 years history with entrants from the world, and has mirrored the flow of the times and the atmosphere of life as well.
