program. Most festivals do not have the resources to formally classify their programs and it is for this reason alone that AIAF has a range of age restrictions.

The Tender March > Wataru Uekusa > Japan

The second part of our look at the current Japanese animation scene. The arrival of legendary Japanese animator Koji Yamamura ('Mt Head', 'Franz Kafka’s A Country Doctor', 'Muybridge’s Strings' to name but a few) dramatically and quickly re-energised the Tokyo University of the Arts animation course into a creative powerhouse of the Japanese animation scene and the world is beginning to sit up and take notice of its graduates. This collection looks at some of their more recent graduate works and shows what a unique wellspring of animation has been untapped there.
