Rainbow Reel Tokyo (Japanese: レインボー・リール東京 Reinbō rīru Tōkyō), until 2016 known as Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival,[1] (Japanese: 東京国際レズビアン&ゲイ映画祭 Tōkyō kokusai rezubian to gei eigasai), also known by the acronym TILGFF, is an international film festival for LGBT audiences, held annually in Tokyo, the capital city of Japan.

The Festival was established in 1992 and was held at Nakano Sun Plaza, 6th Floor (中野サンプラザ6F研修室). The next three were held at Kichijōji Baus Theater (吉祥寺バウスシアター). Since 1996, the Festival has been held in July at Spiral Hall in the Aoyama neighborhood of Tokyo.

The 23rd Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival was held July 12~21, 2014, at Eurospace in Shibuya, and Spiral Hall in Aoyama.


Rainbow Reel Competition[edit]

The Rainbow Reel Competition (レインボー・リール・コンペティション) began in 1995[2] as an annual screening of Japanese short films to encourage production of LGBT-themed films. The audience selects a favorite film and the director is awarded the Grand Prix Rainbow Reel Award (レインボー・リール賞(グランプリ)), currently a ¥100,000 prize ($1000 US).[3]
