The Busan International Short Film Festival (BISFF) was launched in 1980 as the Korean Short Film Festival. It was the first short film festival to appear in Korea and will be celebrating its 29th year in May 2012, which will open with classic short film masterpieces including the Lumière brothers’ early works.
BISFF aims to explore the format of the short film by offering a wide selection of works from Korea and other countries regardless of genre or theme. In its early years, the festival screened only Korean films, providing a platform for young Korean filmmakers’ works to be introduced to wider audiences. Among the festival’s previous award winners are many of now-famous Korean directors such as KANG Je-kyu (My Way, 2010), KIM Tae-yong (Late Autumn, 2010) and RYU Seung-wan (The Unjust, 2010), to name only a few.
