ABOUT MEIHODO INTERNATIONAL YOUTH VISUAL MEDIA FESTIVAL

The Meihodo International Youth Visual Media Festival is an independent film festival hosted by Meihodo Inc., a Japanese corporation working to support and promote young international creators and provide a platform for cultural conversations between film producers from all over the world.

The annual festival debuted in 2018, in Fukuoka, Japan. Each year, it culminates with an evaluation and awards ceremony.

The event is organized, operated, and judged by an executive committee assembled by Meihodo. Since 2018, world-renowned television host, producer, and Emmy winner Madame Yue-Sai Kan has served as the committee’s Honorary Chairperson. We have also had the honor of regularly welcoming Sir Tan Dun, the dean of the Bard Conservatory of Music and a Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar Award winner, as Honorary Chairman of The Jury.

We were pleased to welcome Madame Juliette Binoche as our Guest of Honor and Special Advisor last year at our third annual festival. Her many accolades include an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and a César Award. She also served as the Chairman of the Jury for the 69th Berlin Film Festival in 2019.

In past years, internationally renowned Chinese photographer/visual artist Chen Man has also accepted our invitation to serve as the Honorary Chairperson of the Jury.

Each annual festival carries a theme. In 2021, the theme was centered on an unforgettable period. We asked creators to share a glimpse of everyday life during the pandemic, and we received 2,309 submissions from 102 countries. The 2021 committee consisted of 30 judges from 12 nations. They handpicked 655 official selections, 124 prestigious works, and 25 award winners across four separate categories. The Grand Prize was awarded to Iranian director Komeil Soheili for his short film “Coexist.” In all, a total of 68 entries received more than $150,000 in prizes.

This year, the Fourth Annual Meihodo International Youth Visual Media Festival will focus on innovation and exploring the brave new world of the future, with cryptocurrency and NFTs as newly added components. It has been approved by Meihodo’s executive committee and is set to be organized through Meihodo’s U.S. headquarters in New York City. It will be sponsored by Meihodo Short Film Productions and Meihodo New York Inc.
