■ Pusan International Film Festival
Oct. 7-15

In its ninth year, the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF), Asia's biggest cinema event, will emphasize the diversity in international cinema more than in previous years. This year's event will present 266 films from 63 countries, including screening films from Africa and Latin America. The festival will open with a reworked version of "2046" (pictured) by China's auteur director Wong Gar Wai. The film, a sensual and mysterious story about a writer working on a science fiction novel made its much-anticipated premiere at Cannes in May, but the director has since shot additional scenes and re-edited the film. "Chuhung Kulsi (The Scarlet Letter)", the local romantic thriller, will close the event. Some of the sections at the festival include A Window on Asian Cinema, Korean Panorama and World Cinema. A retrospective of the Greek director Theo Angelopolous and special sections on German and Indonesian films will be offered. Tickets are 5,000 won for regular screenings. Details: www.piff.org.
