International Communication


Tokyo University of Arts

While film schools have been established primarily in advanced nations that realized the importance of film media as an industry, for various reasons this matter hasnt been given sufficient thought here in Japan. The Tokyo University of the Arts proposed the establishment of a Film department to the Education Ministry in 1949, but even though the plan got approved, it remained unimplemented.
It is a well-known fact that the establishment of film schools and measures for promotion has been emphasized in various Asian countries over the past decades, as a result of which Asia has produced an array of flourishing creators that have come to represent a totally new type of Asian talent on the international stage.
The Graduate School of Film and New Media is an autonomous graduate college without undergraduate course, offering masters and doctoral programs. Following the initial establishment of the Department of Film Production (2005), the Department of New Media and the Doctoral Program, the Department of Animation was added in 2008.
