2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Tiffcom, which is a multi-content festival held in Tokyo. Tiffcom marries the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) with a trade show of programming content providers. (Content refers to products such as film, dramas, anime, documentaries, and music, which are available for licensing on various media.)
Although we conduct most of our business with Japan content providers via email and phone throughout the year, Tiffcom provides an excellent opportunity to see everyone in one place over a short period of time. It’s also a great place to meet new people and seek out new content and content providers. And, of course, nothing takes the place of meeting people face-to-face, reconnecting with business partners, and building relationships in person.
I am headed to Tokyo for Tiffcom and looking forward to connecting with old and new friends.
