Award-winning WorldMediaFestival films at seminar in Tokyo
Dear Ms. Cora Chinbuah,
We wish to have expressed our gratitude for your coming to the screening in Japan last year.
Mr. Takeshi Osuka, vice president of our association, died on March 6 this year. His death was a big severe wound for us. But his will is succeeded, an international committee was started up with new members. Mr. Kimio Ito, President of Image Science and Mitsuro Makiguchi, Managing Director of Image Science joined as members. Of course, we also have obtained the strong support of Ms. Emiko Okumura.
We are planning the screening of the Corporate film that received the high
appraisal in Europe and the United States this year.
We have got the high appraisal from the participant every year because this kind of film doesn't have the chance to be open to the public in Japan besides this screening.

Forum "Film WORKS" Successful Investment in Corporate Films
Organiser and host is Hamburg@work
in cooperation with
- Working Group for Audiovisual Media at Hamburg@work
- intermedia / WorldMediaFestival - global competition for modern media
Experienced communications managers from substantial businesses talk about successful corporate film projects that received awards in 2005 at the WorldMediaFestival - global competition for modern media.
The forum is intended for
- Senior managers in companies, trade associations and organisations who are responsible for communication and publicity
- PR specialists who act on behalf of clients
- Producers of corporate films, as well as those who write, direct and film them
- Service providers in the audiovisual media industry
- Specialist journalists
Communication films have differing and very special tasks to perform.
Concept and realisation have to be carefully agreed between commissioner and producer when complex messages are involved. The more exactly the effective communication of core messages is thought through and worked on, the more certain it is that the film will achieve its intended effect, and thus be of use to the commissioner.
Film success needs continuity and a strategic overview.
This Forum lets you look over the shoulder of successful communications managers, and provides information on
- The importance of, and possibilities of, the medium
- Specific advantages
- Budgeting and distribution
