But by the next day it was down to business with TIFF head Tom Yoda holding a discussion with journalists about the work Japan has to do to catchup with the American content business which Yoda estimated to be five times its size. Still, business and culturego hand in hand at he festival. Cultural highlights kicking off day three  include a special-focus on six films by a new generation of Taiwanese directors that has risen following the golden age of the masters Hou Hsiao-hsien, Tsai Ming-liang, and Edward Yang.
