AboutStory of Logo


The NIFF logo is originated from the traditional Japanese roof tile. The tile with a cherry flower design was discovered from the remains of the Heijo palace, where the emperor's residence and governement office existed when Nara was the capital of Japan 1300 years ago. The cherry flower is a symbolic icon of the ancient capital. The 5 petals and 7 dots inside of them represent the 5 continents and 7 seas of the world, and the 24 dots around the flower represent the film basic of 24 frames per second.
