French films at the 24th Busan International Film Festival

This year marks the 24th edition of Asia's biggest film festival, the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Korea, which will take place from October 3 through 12 and also features a major sidebar event, the Asian Film Market. As is the case each year, French films will be strongly represented at this festival primarily dedicated to Asian cinema.

With twenty-five French films (including majority-French co-productions) programmed, BIFF 2019 will not only continue to give French cinema wide exposure, but this year will present ten more French titles than in 2018. These films will be accompanied by a sizable delegation of actors and directors, including Costa Gavras, Robert Guédiguian, Ariane Ascaride, Ladj Ly, Éric Lartigau, Chiara Mastroianni, Jean-Charles Hue, Rabah Ameur-Zaïmèche, and Damien Bonnard, among others, as well as Hirokazu Kore-eda, who will introduce his film The Truth and receive a tribute award in honor of his lifetime achievement.

A French Evening event organized by the French Embassy in collaboration with UniFrance will be held on October 5 at the Paradise Hotel in the presence of the French Ambassador to South Korea.
