Cooperation with the Japan Committee for UNICEF: "Communicating for Children"

The Earth is One Family

Since CON-CAN was founded, we have embraced the philosophy of“Communicating for children”, and even today with the 5th movie festival underway, this fundamental ideal is still our essential commitment. CON-CAN strives to further develop society and improve social welfare by making it its mission to contribute in every little way that it can.

Through CON-CAN, directors and viewers are able to voice the expressions of their souls to people who struggle to get along within their environment. The power of short movies allows CON-CAN to contribute to society by cross-linking people.

Starting in December 2007, CON-CAN (Parent Company: Media Research, Inc.) has been sharing part of its movie library with J:COM (Jupiter Telecommunications Co, Ltd. - Japan's largest cable television provider) to provide a video-on demand service for J:COM subscribers. When a movie is purchased by a customer, all proceeds go to the Japan Committee for UNICEF. Before the movie begins, a brief video message of Dr. Agnes Chan Miling, ambassador of the Japan Committee for UNICEF, is shown.CON-CAN provides 3 movies tri-monthly to be aired on J:COM's channel. The 3 movies that are currently being aired on J:COM's Fundraising on Demand project are shown below.
