Dear New York Japan CineFest Family,
I hope this message finds you healthy and strong in this difficult uncertain time in the whole world.
Like anything else in the world, our film festival, too is facing a difficult situation of uncertainty where our main venue, Asia Society in New York City will be available on June 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
As the result, we had to make the difficult decision to postpone our announcement of this year’s opening date of New York Japan CineFest until we are 100% sure that we can get the venues.
We have watched the entire submitted movies and as we planned, we are not accepting any more submissions for this year’s program. As soon as our venues become available and scheduled with New York Japan CineFest, we will notify you as to whether your movie is selected for this year’s program or not.
Thank you for understanding and once again, please stay healthy and strong.
New York Japan CineFest
