Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) announces this year’s Gala Screening film as well as The Irishman as Closing Film.


TIFF will hold a Gala Screening event on October 31, presenting the Japanese film Talking the Pictures, directed by Masayuki Suo, who produced many masterpieces including Shall We Dance? and I Just Didn’t Do It which he gained worldwide attention. This entertainment film combined with the elements of action, love and comedy will be the highlight of the festival.

The Irishman will close the festival on November 5, which is a legendary director Martin Scorsese's first ever Netflix epic saga of organized crime in postwar America, starring award-winning actors Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. A Netfilx film will create a buzz again on a big screen during the festival like last year’s Roma.

Along with our Opening Film Tora-san, Wish You Were Here which was announced earlier, these films will put the additional excitement to 32nd TIFF. The red carpet will roll out in Roppongi on the first day of the festival, welcoming stars and filmmakers from across the globe, as well as for TIFF’s special red carpet event for the Gala Screening, with the cast from the film.

The 32nd TIFF will take place from October 28 to November 5, 2019.

The screening schedule will be announced on the official TIFF website ( in early October.
