The Tokyo Lesbian and Gay Film Festival

The Tokyo Lesbian and Gay Film Festival takes place in the Japanese capital this July.

Fans of the big screen will be able to enjoy around 45 films from 13 different countries, reports Whatsonwhen.

The event was first staged in 1994 and regularly attracts thousands of people of all backgrounds and persuasions.

Most of the films shown have Japanese subtitles, while non-English movies come with English subtitles.

Among the films seen at last year's event included the Asian premiere of Were the World Mine, the Japanese premiere of Out At the Wedding and the Korean movie No Regret.

Confirmed venues for the festival are Spiral Hall and the Wald9 Cinema in Marui City.

The official party will take place at Le Grand Bal.

Other festivals taking place in Japan soon include Takayama Matsuri in April, the Yabusame Festival in Tokyo's Sumida Park and Kanda Matsuri at the Kanda Myojin Shrine.
