There's no doubting that these days we're surrounded by video content in our day-to-day lives. Whether it's watching short clips from our smartphones, seeing advertising on digital billboards, or even relaxing at home with YouTube, the video medium shows up in many aspects of life.

Admission to the festival is free of charge.
The Tokyo Photographic Art Museum is located around 7 minutes on foot from the East Exit of the JR Ebisu Station, served by the Yamanote Line, the Shonan-Shinjuku Line, and the Saikyo Line.
For those planning to drive, there is no dedicated parking lot - it is advised to park in the nearby paid Yebisu Garden Place lot (details can be found here).
