Platform BUSAN

Joint Growth Network for Independent Filmmakers in Asia

Newly emerging independent filmmakers in Asia gather in Platform BUSAN, a networking event hosted by Busan International Film Festival(BIFF). In this event, participants share their professional experiences and create a global network amongst themselves. As a leading force in Asian Cinema, BIFF aspires that this event will become a milestone for Asian independent filmmakers to expand their global network and thus become greater impact in the world of cinema. Last year, 178 participants from 26 countries around Asia joined the event. Celebrating its 3rd year, Platform BUSAN presents many great programs led by world-class experts from the industry and a firm environment for the participants to actively interchange artistic philosophies and field experiences. Many special guests, including Kore-eda Hirokazu (MANBIKI KAZOKU), and Park Chan-wook (OLDBOY, THE HANDMAIDEN) will lecture on various topics relating to their works and professions. This year’s program also focuses on widening the visions of Asian filmmakers and helping them tap into a larger market. From Hollywood, a renowned producer Jason BLUM (WHIPLASH, GET OUT) and a promising film director Patrick Hughes (RED HILL, A HITMAN’S BODYGUARD) attend for talks. European Film Promotion (EFP) and European Audio Visual Entrepreneurs (EAVE) also join Platform BUSAN to participate in multiple events, allowing the participants to navigate global collaboration opportunities.
