The Busan International Film Festival kicked off on October 3rd. As was expected, actors Jo Jung-suk and Yoona of the hit film "Exit - Movie" were there, as well as writer/director Lee Sang-eun. South Korean media was on the scene to cover the event.
This is the 24th annual edition of the Busan International Film Festival, commonly abbreviated as BIFF. The red carpet event, where film industry professionals put on nice clothes and walk in front of the cameras, has become a popular fixture of the event. 303 films submitted from 85 countries will be shown throughout forty odd screens at the festival through October 12th.
