We understand that you understand the realm of understanding and so you have created your wonderful films with your conscious understanding.

Showcasing Greatness through Audio-Visual
Through vantage point we see that entertainment is just the medium to share realm of life with film lovers. If we penetrate the meaning of life sometime we feel that there is no such meaning or purpose to life, yes! Sometime, but we must have to give a great meaning or purpose to life to create great message for whole humanity or for our next generation.

We are really very small people; please understand what we want to say. But the task or mission which we want to empower is very big. One can understand it by the example of river. The beginning or origin of every river is so small but her consistency with selflessness leads her towards more hugeness.

Most Welcome!
Dear human beings, being human it is good if we transform each moment into humane one.

We really admire your passion and enthusiasm as a filmmaker so with humbleness we invite filmmakers from all across the globe to share your great films into Great Message International Film Festival - GMIFF.

  • We are so humbled and grateful to participate in Great Message International Film Festival this year, with "Hit List" and "Eraser" from the Love Project Film series, here in Japan. We found the festival's communication to be enthusiastic, clear and supportive all around. Most of all, we appreciate the positive messages and strong values this festival supports and promotes through filmmaking and storytelling, so it was an extreme honor to simply be selected and participate in this festival. In addition, we were genuinely and pleasantly surprised to see awards among "Best Short" (for Hit List) and the "OSHO Global Filmmaker Award" (for Eraser), which were extremely generous - and we are so grateful! We eagerly and gladly hope to submit to Great Message IFF again in the future, in support of their mission and heart to see a positive impact for humanity, society and inspiration for the world around us through international cinema. Thank you so much - from all of us here in Japan! :)
