Platform BUSAN is a networking platform where independent filmmakers in Asia can share their experience and seek out opportunities for collaboration. By providing the network for young and emerging filmmakers and professionals based in Asia, Busan International Film Festival will not only continue to be the central channel for Asian cinema, but also lead the future of Asian cinema.
Launching successfully in 2017 with more than 160 participants from 21 countries, Platform BUSAN aims to host a more practical and wider-ranging program in its second year, through which independent filmmakers will grow together and find ways to tap into a larger global market.
Participants of the program will be attending Platform BUSAN events where Asian independent filmmakers and professionals will meet each other and discuss Asian cinema and film industry. In addition, the access to BIFF screenings, Asian Film Market, and major events at BIFF will be granted.
