In 2014, the Japan Foundation Asia Center and the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) started making a joint effort, in order to deepen understanding among Japan and other Asian countries, to introduce talents in the Asian film industry to the world, and to build networks for the future. This effort is to be continued toward the year 2020, when the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games are held. In 2015, as the second year, an omnibus film coproduction project Asian Three-Fold Mirror is launched as part of the effort.
Asian Three-Fold Mirror appoints three accomplished directors from Japan and other Asian countries each time, to making an omnibus film with a common theme, and this time, the three directors Isao Yukisada (Japan), Brillante Ma. Mendoza (Philippines), Sotho Kulikar (Cambodia) have been announced to collaborate for the first of the series.
