Chofu celebrates its connection to the movie industry in an explosive way. As several film scenes have been shot on the banks of the Tamagawa, and Chofu is home to multiple film studios and companies, the festival is dubbed 'City of Cinema: Chofu Autumn Fireworks'. Around 10,000 rockets will be launched over the river, choreographed to popular film scores.
