Busan West features Pan-Asian films selected directly from the year’s Busan International Film Festival, the largest Asian film festival in the world which takes place in Busan, South Korea. The program features invited directors representing the films, along with an Opening Night Gala, a Retrospective evening after party and a Closing Night reception, all designed to showcase Pan-Asian culture through food, music, and décor. Q & A sessions led by renowned film scholars guide the audiences in conversation with directors and actors who join us for Busan West.
The 2013 festival ushered in the addition of two new segments - a martial arts cinema panel and an American-Asian Short Film Competition.
Stay tuned for more information on the 2014 festival.
