 開催概要  Summary
空想のアジア The Imaginary Asia
ミャンマー映画祭 Myanmar Cinema Festival
現実のアジア The Real Asia
日本初の本格的ミャンマー映画祭(「ミャンマー映画祭」)を開催します。 We are pleased to announce “The Myanmar Cinema Festival”, the official Myanmar Cinema Festival.

Myanmar is located at the crossroads of India and China, the two great cultures. This country is also next to Thailand, and faces the large Indian Ocean.
Today, Myanmar is the most mysterious country in the world, virtually unknown to the outside world.

息を呑むような美しさと魅力ある国は、今でもなおこのように現代世界に残されています。何気なく訪れた人は、それゆえに何を感じとるのでしょうか、そしてなぜそのような旅に乗り出すのでしょうか。 This breathtakingly beautiful and charming country still survives. What do the people who casually visit there feel about it? And why do they take a journey like this?



You can enjoy traditional Asian pleasures in Myanmar, one of the most charming of countries.
The uncultivated jungle, the unknown snowy mountains of the Himalayas, and the untouched beaches facing the Andaman Sea have had a rich and solemn cultural heritage for over 2,000 years.
Today, 135  races still live in the amazing remains and ancient cities, their lives are full of culture.



Also, Myanmar has one of the lowest levels of crime in all the countries in the world.

Many cultural features ? buildings, music, pictures, and classic plays ? have been inherited from long ago, and even in the 21st Century, the magnificent pagodas, that were built over 2,000 years ago, overwhelm visiting people.


Now, we will present this country’s cinematic achievements - “The 1st Myanmar Cinema Festival”.

It is a matter of great significance for the improvement of international understanding and cultural exchange to show these films.


The concept of the cinema festival is to show Myanmar as it is today. We selected these films to show you the way real life goes on in Myanmar, through the stories about people’s lives in the city and the countryside, the economy and business activities, schools, family life and life of women. These films contain many sociological and anthropological points of interest.
