Dear festival researchers and colleagues: 

The Film Festival Research Network (FFRN) is proud to be a part of the First
Busan Cinema Forum (BCF) taking place from October 10 to 12, hosted by the
16th Busan International Film Festival (October 6-14).

The Busan International Film Festival strived to advance the film industry
and establish networks through diverse programs. The Asian Film Academy
(AFA) procures and cultivates talented filmmakers and the Asian Cinema Fund
(ACF) financially supports the film productions. The festival has prepared
itself in building a strong foundation in theory, academics, and industry to
expand the sphere of corporate activity. The Busan International Film
Festival will host the Busan Cinema Forum, an international academic
conference that gathers film scholars from all over the world.

The theme for the first Busan Cinema Forum is “Seeking the Path of Asian
Cinema in the 21st century: East Asia.” The forum will host representatives
from six world film research organizations and a group of critics. Among the
participating organizations are Les Cahiers du Cinéma, the Film Studies
Association of Korea (FISAK), the Annual Southeast Asian Cinemas Conference
(ASEACC), the Film Festival Research Network (FFRN), the Association of East
Asian Film Studies (AEAF), and the Society for Cinema and Media Studies
(SCMS).  The keynote presenters are legendary Thai director Apichatpong
Weerasethakul and Film Studies professor at Yale University Dudley Andrew.
