Use of Green Power

Green Power

As an initiative launched since last year, the Tokyo International Film Festival, has been implementing environmental protection and social contribution activities through the film festival.

The use of Green Power is of one of its activities.

The range of Green Power use has been expanded even further this year and the electricity for the following venues will be powered solely by the Green Power.

・TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills (Screening Theater)
・Roppongi (Screening Room)
・Cinemart Roppongi Hills Arena (TIFFpark)
・Academy Hills 49 (Film Festival office as well as various seminar venues)

The total amount of power use is 77,000 kilowatt-hours.

To realize this project, we purchase the electrical power generated by the 3 types of natural energy sources, namely, the Wind Power, Solar Light and Biomass (Biological Resources).
