Opening Doors in Busan

The Busan International Film Festival, one of Asia’s most vital film festivals, takes place annually in October (6 – 15, 2016). Its focus on up-and-coming directors, as well as its welcoming youthful audience and strong industry participation, has made it a mainstay on the industry calendar. When it opened its doors in 1996 as Korea’s first international film festival, BIFF quickly welcomed EFP’s programme of European films and filmmakers.  Each year, European directors and actors are welcomed to the festival to present their films and to engage with the enthusiastic audiences in Q&A’s. EFP supports their presence with press activities and events aimed at the local and international industry and public. With the launch of the Asian Film Market in 2006, and with the increasing attendance of the European industry, EFP expanded its programme to include an Umbrella Booth for European sales agents as well as the institution of Film Sales Support which offers financial assistance to attending sales agents with films in the festival.
