What is the National Film Center?

The National Film Center opened in 1970 as an annex of The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, and exhibits film documentation, holds scheduled movie screenings, and offers film literature to the public. It is the only national film institution in Japan, and was established as the film department of the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo in 1952. However, it should be noted that it is not very close to the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and it takes around 15 minutes to get there by subway.
