Free Online Distribution on Hulu Japan and Competition Status
We are pleased to announce that the film festival will be streamed free of charge through Hulu, an online video distribution service, for five days from Friday, September 18 to Tuesday, September 22.
Due to the recent world situation, there have been many calls for the cancellation of the film festival.
However, this is the 30th film festival, which should have been a memorable event, and in order not to disrupt this historic film festival, we are going to make it possible for you to watch the film festival online and at home! We are delighted that Hulu Japan has decided to support the 30th edition of the film festival.
In order to help more people to enjoy the film festival, we have decided to offer free streaming of the films for those who come to the festival every year and for those who have never heard of Yubari Fanta before.
During the festival, we plan to screen films from the competition as well as various other events, so please don’t miss this opportunity to experience the new Yubari Fanta!
