The Executive Committee for Anime Film Festival Tokyo (AFFT) announced that this year's event is scheduled to be held in nine theaters in Shinjuku, Tokyo, from September 20 to October 26, 2019, and announced the list of its first screening lineup of 19 titles. AFFT was established in 2017 as part of The Association of Japanese Animations' Anime Next 100 project to celebrate the 100-year history of Japanese animation since 1917.


The first AFFT event was held for only three days between October 13 to 15, 2017, then its second year extended its period to 18 days from October 6 to 22, 2018. Thanks to the previous two years' huge success, AFFT will be held for 37 days in total this year.
