  • Korean Cinema Award

    Korean films have not had widespread reputation in the world cinema community despite the range of quality films. This lack of relative recognition has contributed to the difficulty of finding a large market abroad. In recognition of this, PIFF presents the Korean Cinema Award to foreign figures who have significantly contributed to introducing Korean films to the international community of cinema. This year’s recipients are Sato Tadao from Japan (Principal Japanese Academy of Moving Pictures, Executive Director of the Fukuoka International Film Festival), and Aruna Vasudev from India (Chief Editor of the magazine Cinemaya).
