Information2016.04.18Announcement of the Symposium “The Future of Okinawa and the Role of the Entertainment Business”
We are very pleased to announce that we will hold a memorial symposium at the 8th Okinawa International Movie Festival “All the Islands Okinawa”. The theme will be “The Future of Okinawa and the Role of the Entertainment Business” and it will be held on April 23rd at the ANA Crown Plaza Hotel Okinawa Harbor view.
Okinawa has a supremely rich history of traditional art so it is literally “Islands of Entertainment”. We’d like to focus on Okinawa as a strategic center to disseminate Japanese visual media to domestic and international markets. We encourage entertainment products, visual media, and creative industries to become a core element in the future planning of Okinawa prefecture.
In the symposium, we will invite experts in those fields from Japan and abroad to explore the future of Okinawan youth in the entertainment industry, the development of human resources and exchanges with Okinawa, and how the entertainment business can contribute to connecting Asia with the rest of the world.
