TOKYO — Japan is considering expanding the Tokyo International Film
Festival to boost the country's "cultural content industry," which in
addition to books and film involves animation, comics, music and game
software, the industry minister said Tuesday.

Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Toshihiro Nikai said at a press
conference the film festival, which has been held 18 times, should be
expanded into an event tentatively called "International Content
Carnival" to feature "multi contents" such as animation and comics.
