Record number of French films at the Busan Film Festival
This Korean film festival, one of Asia's leading events, will showcase a bevy of French productions this year, with French films also putting in a strong presence at the film market.
The Busan International Film Festival in South Korea (October 2-11, 2014) will present twenty French films this year, setting a new record for French cinema at this event. If we include all co-productions in which France has participated, this number reaches a staggering 52 films!
The festival will feature a French Evening hosted by UniFrance Films and the French Embassy in South Korea, which will present a screening of The Gate by Régis Wargnier held in the director's presence. The directors Bertrand Bonello, Eric Cherrière, and Boris Lojkine, who will be accompanied by his producer Bruno Nahon, will also be in attendance.
With nineteen years of experience, the Busan International Film Festival has stamped itself as the most important film festival in Asia, thanks in part to the great dynamism of Korean cinema at this time.
The festival also offers a film market that grows in size each year, at which UniFrance Films has participated for the past few years in association with the EFP (European Film Promotion). In 2014, a record number of eighteen French sales companies will be present at the film market, based at the UniFrance Films/EFP stand, which this year is three times the size of last year's stand.
The list of French films to be presented at Busan can be viewed at the Busan International Film Festival - 2014 website.
