Tokyo International Film Festival

Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is a film festival established in 1985. The event was held bi-annually from 1985 to 1991 and annually thereafter. Along with the Shanghai International Film Festival, it is one of Asia's only two competitive film festivals accredited by the FIAPF. [ [ International Federation of Film Producers Associations] .]

The awards handed out during the festival have changed throughout its existence, but the Tokyo Grand Prix, handed to the best film, has stayed as the top award. Other awards that have been given regularly include the Special Jury Award and awards for best actor, best actress and best director.
