Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) will screen an array of selected movies starring legendary Kung Fu movie icon Bruce Lee, as part of the Winds of Asia Middle-East section this year, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of his birth.

This special tribute, entitled "The 70th Anniversary: Bruce LEE to the Future," will show one of Bruce Lee's most successful films, "Enter the Dragon," organizers of the festival told Xinhua Wednesday.

A rare version of the Kung Fu movie star's last film, "Game of Death," which was distributed in Japan in 1978, as well as exciting Asian films that pay homage to him will also be screened.

Bruce Lee is believed to continue to inspire filmmakers around the world more than 30 years after his death.

The festival, 23rd of its kind, will be held from Oct. 23 to 31 at Roppongi Hills and other venues in Tokyo.
