23rd Busan International Film Festival Launches an Audience Participation Event Called ‘Community BIFF’
The 23rd Busan International Film Festival launches an audience participation event called ‘Community BIFF’. The event will be held in the central area of Busan Jung-gu from Friday, October 5th to Wednesday, October 10th to increase local audience engagement and encourage local communities in Busan.
The Busan International Film Festival hosts the Community BIFF, an audience participation event; there is also organizational support from the Busan Museum of Movies, The Corner Theater, Funnycon, Busan International Kids & Youth Film Festival and Busan Community Media Center. This event will be held in the suburban area of Busan Jung-gu, the place where the 1st Busan International Film Festival began. The event will be held as a Fringe festival, where local audiences can plan, manage, and request particular films that they want to watch.
The event will be divided into a ‘screening program’ and ‘experience program’. The screening program is comprised of three sections that also includes an ‘activity theater’ which invites anyone for screening, a program for film students and film lovers ‘cinephile round’, and ‘community cinema’ where major local communities gather and talk. Many of participating programs are available for everyone to join regardless of age and sex.
You can find Community BIFF news on Community BIFF social media services (https://mobile.twitter.com/com_biff2018). All screenings are free (an small fee should be paid for a few experiencing programs).
