32nd TIFF Lifetime Achievement Awards to Go to Tatsuya Nakadai and Nobuhiko Obayashi



The Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is pleased to announce that two cinema legends, actor Tatsuya Nakadai and director Nobuhiko Obayashi, will be honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 32nd TIFF for their significant contributions to the film industry.

Nakadai is known around the world for his roles in films directed by Akira Kurosawa, and has appeared in the films of many of Japan’s leading directors. He has received numerous awards at film festivals in Japan and overseas, and is being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in the theater as well as film.

Obayashi is also globally known, having released numerous independent films as well as many other works over a 60-year career. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors his career and his latest film, completed against all odds.

The Return, starring Nakadai, will be screened in the Special Programs section as an Asian premiere at the 32nd TIFF. This samurai drama, shot in 8K, had its world premiere at MIPCOM earlier this month. Obayashi will be featured as The Wizard of Cinema in Japan Now section, which features work containing his message of peace, including his latest film, Labyrinth of Cinema.

The 32nd TIFF Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony will be held during the festival, which runs from October 28 (Mon) to November 5 (Tue), 2019.
