23rd Busan International Film Festival Announces 9 Nominees for Kim Jiseok Award

This year, Kim Jiseok Award is granted to nominees from A Window on Asian Cinema, a section introducing films produced by active and talented Asian directors or those in worldwide recognition already. Among the section, 2 finalists will be chosen and awarded 10,000,000 KRW (approximately 10,000 USD) each.


Kim Jiseok Award was established last year to remember Kim Jiseok, the Program Director of Busan International Film Festival who dedicated himself to fostering new Asian films, discovering and supporting up-and-coming Asian directors. Justin Chang of American film critic, Eric Khoo of Singaporean film director and Hayashi Kanako of Japan will serve as jurors for the Kim Jiseok Award at the 23rd Busan International Film Festival.
