Every year the Japan Media Arts Festival fascinates thousands of visitors by a top-class programme of vanguard media art, entertainment, anime and manga in Tokyo. The most ambitious and excellent works win the award and will be exhibited all over the world. After Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Vienna and Istanbul the Dortmunder U is the next location for the 6th Japan Media Arts Festival Over Sea Exhibition. The prize winners of the last festival were chosen for this show. Among these awardees are well known artists like the director Hayao Miyazaki and newly discovered talents like Shinya Uchida, an iPad-magician. Current anime and milestones of the Japanese film genre can also be enjoyed as part of the broaden film programme. These films are seldom showed on a big screen in Germany.
