TIFF - Green Carpet

When: 17 Oct 2008
What: Tokyo International Film Festival
Where: Roppongi Keyakizaka Street

Tony Leung, Julianne Moore, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Yoshino Kimura, Hiroshi Abe, Carina Lau, Teppei Koike and Vicki Zhao are just a few of the names gracing the glamourous event right here, accentuated at the Roppongi Keyakizaka Street in the enchanting dusk of the evening. Straying away from the usual red carpet, green seem to be the in thing nowadays hence The Green Carpet Welcome on the opening day at Roppongi Keyakizaka Street with a hope of conveying the message of “Ecology = Preservation of Earth’s Environment.” and to top it off, the carpet is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles!

The 21st TIFF will hold various events under the theme of this edition, "Ecology", as innovative efforts to become a leading world film festival, in which guests, fans and sponsors will enjoy participating. Action! for Earth, speaks to the dying needs of the earth's environment. We've seen loads of filmmakers addressing the issue, no international film festival has stepped up to stand up for the cause.

So enough of the reading/writing, on with the pictures and videos!
