Founded in 1996, the Busan International Film Festival has since greatly contributed to the development and discovery of Korean cinema and Asian films.
Since its foundation, for the past 27 years, the Busan International Film Festival has been introducing new Asian films to industry professionals and audience, fulfilling its fundamental purpose and role as a film festival. In addition, through various programs such as the Asian Contents & Film Market (ACFM), Asian Cinema Fund (ACF), Asian Project Market (APM), CHANEL X BIFF Asian Film Academy, FORUM BIFF, and Platform BUSAN, BIFF has solidified and reaffirmed its status as the largest film festival in Asia.
The official selections, which are now accepting submissions, will be available for screening at the 28th Busan International Film Festival, which will be held from Oct 4 (Wed) to Oct 13 (Fri).
