Festival Director Greeting

With large and small concerns in the world and everyday life,
we sail again for Asia's best film festival.

The festival is not about forgetting anxiety and lack for a moment,
but about sharing the wisdom of accompanying it and the willingness to laugh in the midst of it, just like truly great films do.

A film festival where you can smile face to face again,
and a film festival where you look at a distant yet beautiful dream shared together.

I hope the 27th Busan International Film Festival will be such a venue for you.
Again, we invite you to the ocean of cinema in fall.
