Comments from Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia International Short Film Festival Founder Tetsuya Bessho

Ginza Sony Park is a new landmark in Ginza.

The wonderful concept of an ever-changing park and an enlivening, playful experience really resonated with me.

Short films offer the chance to find out what you like, and to connect with others.

I hope Park Cinema by ShortShorts can be a project that does just that.

Please take a moment to enjoy short films from all over the world at Ginza Sony Park.
