This expresses the feelings directly felt by the children, and was surprised and was touched by the fact that it was finished in the work. I reconfirmed that entertainment connects people with people across the border. I am delighted to be able to participate in a wonderful project to witness the birthplace of friendship and experience born at the festival. Continue, I would like to support children who will be responsible for the future.

Mariya Nishiuchi supports the Asian International Children's Film Festival! Through children's films, I want to receive their messages, like "the things we should know", or "the things we should think now", and then open up their mind to the world.
Toshio Matsumoto (Actor)
What do children who will take lead in the future truly think or feel now? Through their films, I want to feel their dream, hope and heart which is difficult to put into words, and I want to think what we "grown-ups" should do for them. This film festival is an opportunity for me to think it deeply. So It's a great pleasure for me to watch children's film works in Asia.
Yutaka Yamakawa (Singer)
Since I have participated in the film festival, I've come to feel differently about children. Various messages from their films recalled the pure feeling in my heart like a childhood. I'm looking forward to meeting enjoyable film works with great ideas and sensibilities, which we "grown-ups" would never think of, as if the films would blow away a stereotype or common sense.

I participated in the 9th "Asian International Film Festival", I was allowed to look at the work that made the culture of the children! I know the children have an open mind and their perception of the world surprises me. This film festival , it becomes an opportunity to lead the child' growth. and film festival has a lot to learn as well as adults. What type of work was created this year? , I'm very excited !
In this film festival, we can understand children's state of mind by making it into a film, like "What do they feel or think at the bottom of their heart?"So we are truly looking forward to the festival. We hope that we pay careful attention to their thoughts and messages and do something for their future. They have a lot of seeds of hope and possibilities.

Children are free and full of life, and besides, they have full of imagination and creativity beyond grown-ups. Their pure and innocent film works which they combine various elements will give us fresh feelings. At the same time, I believe their experiences of the participation in the film festival will last in their memories.

Children must have experienced a lot of failure and difficulties to make a film. But in return, when the film is finished up, they will get a sense of accomplishment. Those experiences will live in their heart. I have a great expectation of the future for the growth of children on the film festival.

Similar to the last year this year, "Asia International Children's Film Festival" will be held in Kitami City, Hokkaido. But culture is different, children who are hurt the heart in a common trouble. Alternatively, children who are faced with the country-specific of various problems. I take this film festival as a great opportunity to find children's feelings and ideas. Since Children of today have a mixture of emotions, such as joy, sorrow or distress, I want to understand their feelings, even a little and find a new part of their feelings. Lastly I sincerely wish this film festival may be successful.
Terry Ito (Stage Director)
Children have very pure and remarkable sensibilities. Our role is to accept their amazing ideas which they sometimes express to us who are bound with common sense. I hope this film festival is a clue to close the gap between children and us.
We are truly happy that we will participate this film festival as "Max". We are very excited that we can find new things or feelings by touching children's film works which show us their pure innocent mind. We hope that participating this film festival gives confidence to the children and also it is related to their growth.
