After filmmakers from around the world watched the screening, NTT issued a call for short films featuring the theme of our ideal lives created alongside scientific and technological innovation. From the entries, we will create one short film that best captures the theme.

You can watch the conference on the official SSFF & Asia 2022 website.

NTT is working toward the realization of a smart society founded on IOWN, which is the next-generation communication platform. In November 2021, we founded the Natural Society Lab to communicate how the technology incorporating IOWN will benefit society and enrich people's lives. We also create short films to convey to the masses our vision of a world where innovation in science and technology flourish alongside ideal human life.
