After 15 years, we had to cancel the Aomori International LGBT Film Festival last year because of the pandemic.
One year has passed, but we are not sure if the Corona virus situation has improved. It is still difficult for us to set the date for the next film festival. We have decided to wait until the day when all participants can come to Aomori to enjoy the films safely. Previously, we have held the film festival in summer, but we would like to consider another season, such as autumn or later.
We have held the film festival every summer since 2006. We are sorry and sad to make this announcement for two consecutive years. However, the most important thing for us is to protect participants' health and safety. We appreciate your understanding.
We look forward to the day when we can get together again in Aomori. Until then, please take care of yourself and stay safe!

Aomori International LGBT Film Festival
This is a multi-faceted film festival, focusing on human sexuality and the rights of all people.
LGBT is an umbrella term that is commonly used to refer to the sexual minority in society. It is drawn from the first letters of the words lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
Through these LGBT-related movies and documentaries, it is our hope that the viewers will reflect on human rights and that these rights must be enjoyed by all people in a fair and just society.
