The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of the “Media Arts” (Media Geijutsu in Japanese) that recognizes outstanding works in four divisions—Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga—and also offers opportunities to appreciate the award-winning works. After a rigid screening process, works in each division were selected for Grand Prizes, Excellence Awards, New Face Awards, Social Impact Awards, and U-18 Awards from among 3,693 entries from 103 countries and regions around the world. Works were chosen for Festival Platform Awards from among 114 submissions from 34 countries and regions. In addition, artists who made significant contributions to the field of Media Arts were recognized with Special Achievement Awards.
Animation x Music - Selected from Award-winning Works of Japan Media Arts Festival
Date & Time: 8 - 12 November (Monday-Friday), 10:00-18:00
This programme is a selection of award-winning works from the Japan Media Arts Festival focusing on music videos and short animation films that use music as sound curated by OYAMA Kei (Producer and CEO, CALF Co., Ltd.)
It has been said that music videos are one of the few jobs that allow artists to create relatively freely and show their own unique styles. In recent years, the need for music videos has increased as more and more music works are being viewed through video sharing sites, and there has been a huge animated music video movement in Japan, especially among young people.
