True Colors THEATER

True Colors Film Festival 2021


How has your life changed? What has come to mean more to you, and what have you let go? Perspectives honors these questions and their answers.

Perspectives, the theme of the True Colors Film Festival 2021, honors these shifting times and invites us to sit with our discomfort and re-examine our comforts. In these pandemic years, how has your life changed? What has come to mean the most to you, and what have you let go? What memories were made? What will you tell the next generation about these past two years when life as we knew it was turned on its head?

This year’s program of features and shorts presents human stories about perspectives. Chance encounters that changed lives, the concept of heaven, parents navigating the life journey of their autistic son, a film in which more than half of the cast and crew have disabilities, the first DeafBlind actor in a film, red dog-shaped balloons and more. These stories about inclusion, diversity, hope, empowerment and human connection mark a quiet revolution of voices changing the way we perceive our differences and our similarities.

The True Colors Film Festival 2021 runs from December 3 to 12, 2021. The launch on December 3 coincides with International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), a day to remember the world’s largest minority community – people with disabilities.

True Colors Festival

TCF is a long-running international festival of performing arts. We celebrate diversity and inclusion, and embrace the fact that we are One World, One Family. We choose the arts as our platform, for its power to move, inspire and heal.

As a festival, TCF brings people together to generate exchanges, innovation and creativity; and transform the way we relate to each other.

Presented by The Nippon Foundation, TCF brings diverse artists and audiences together through concerts, documentaries, music videos, film screenings, children's programs, musicals, workshops and other activities. Since 2006, festivals have been organized in Southeast Asia and Japan, with more than 1,200 artists from more than 30 countries connecting with a global audience in more than 80 countries.

TCF invites you to journey with us, to enjoy, experience, share and spread our consciousness of being One World, One Family.
