Actor Ha Jung-woo's directorial debut has been invited to the 18th Busan International Film Festival, which runs from Oct. 3-12. This year's BIFF will feature 301 films from 70 countries.

"Fasten Your Seatbelt", a comedy about the chaos that ensues when a plane carrying a pop star, monk and paparazzi, among other passengers, runs into a Typhoon, is one of 14 entries to feature in the Panorama section.

It will premiere at the festival before it is released nationwide on Oct 17.

The Panorama section focuses exclusively on contemporary Korean films. Other entries include "Our Sunhi" by Hong Sang-soo, who won the Leopard Award for Best Director at the 66th Locarno International Film Festival; "Moebius" by Kim Ki-duk, which was also invited to non-competition section of the recently ended Venice International Film Festival; and "The Berlin File" by Ryoo Seung-wan, which proved to be one of the biggest box-office hits in the first half of this year in Korea.
