Talents Tokyo is a talent development program derived from Berlinale Talents, which takes place as part of the Berlin International Film Festival. Talents Tokyo started in 2010 with aims for fostering Asian film directors and producers with talents to be great masters of future generation. The project brings promising filmmakers together in Tokyo to help them network with other participants and industry experts through lectures and joint reviews given by film professionals and screening at TOKYO FILMeX.
