Many CLD youth have the ability to perceive things in a relative way through their experience of <migration> between languages and cultures and have a variety of problem consciousness, opinions, and thoughts.

However, within the framework of Japanese society and school education, their abilities are measured only by the language scale of "Japanese," and their inner awareness of issues, opinions, and thoughts are not always fairly evaluated.

The accumulation of such experiences has made them hesitant to express themselves.

Alesse Takaoka believes that art is an equal and effective means of expression that does not put CLD youth at a disadvantage due to differences in the mother tongue, culture, etc.
We have turned our attention to "movies" as one of these art forms.

Films with images and stories appeal directly to each and every one of us, transcending differences.
We also believe that film is a medium in which CLD youth, who speak several languages other than Japanese, can take advantage of their strengths.


Through the expressive activities of the film festival, we hope that all youth will grow and develop their potential through equal discussion and cooperation. and cooperate with each other on an equal footing, and to develop their wonderful potential and the future of the region and the world.


March 26-28, 2022
