We all have a role in our lives, So are film festivals. New York Japan CineFest’s mission is clear. To explore and find unique talent, support their work, vision and cause as we provide creative playground in the most exciting city in the world, New York City.
The New York Japan CineFest (NYJCF) focuses on the independent filmmakers who committed to making their full potential to express their voice and vision to the world. For the first time in its nine-year history, NYJCF will be a virtual festival due to the Covid pandemic and chose to launch on Cyber-NY's Logic Virtual Cinema platform. Selections will be available online the weekend of November 20 through 22nd at watch.nyjcf.com.
NYJCF was founded in 2011 by two filmmakers, Yasu Suzuki, Kosuke Furukawa and an event producer Hiroshi Kono, and originally planned as a rather small one night event. While the three friends were organizing the first event, a devastating earthquake occurred in their home country, Japan. Since then, their mission broadened to connect Asian films and American and world films, to shake up the ground in the positive way to raise the spirit.
Cyber-NY built the NYJCF film festival on our Logic Virtual Cinema platform, a cloud-based CMS that provides video encoding and streaming services and features specific to festival applications like film upvoting, member registrations, geofencing, and reporting.
