Model Anne to be “character” of Japan’s CoFesta
Fashion model Anne will serve as the “main character” of this year’s CoFesta (Japan International Contents Festival), which is taking place from September 30 to October 28. Now in its second year, the festival consists of a wide range of media events, including Tokyo Game Show, Tokyo International Film Festival, and Tokyo Asia Music Market.
Anne, who is the daughter of Ken Watanabe, will help promote the festival through advertising and PR events. Last year’s representative was renowned actor Koji Yakusho. Anne has also been successful internationally as a model, and recently she was given her first starring role as an actress in a French film called “Fashion Week,” directed by Claude Junior Zidi (details here).
