Busan International Film Festival

The Busan International Film Festival is held annually in Haeundae-gu, Busan (also Pusan), South Korea, and is one of the most significant film festivals in Asia. Jungshim attended the very first festival, held from September 13 to September 21, 1996. It was the first international film festival in Korea. The focus of the BIFF is introducing new films and first-time directors, especially those from Asian countries. Another notable feature is the appeal of the festival to young people, both in terms of the large youthful audience it attracts and through its efforts to develop and promote young talent. Jungshim looks forward to attend the festival again 10-13th October 2011.
