Busan International Film Festival, 2018

OCTOBER 4-13, 2018

BUSAN, SOUTH KOREA

The Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), which began in 1996, was the first international film festival of Korea. It aims at introducing new films and first-time directors, especially those from Asian countries. The festival is organised by the Busan Museum of Movies, The Corner Theater, Funnycon, Busan International Kids & Youth Film Festival and Community Media Foundation.

The 23rd edition of the festival will see a new section called Busan Classics, which introduces valuable films by masters who will remain eternal in film history; films required to be reviewed in another perspective; and the restoration of masterpieces in order to focus on artistic achievement and historical values in films.
