Four films, one film project, and 10 production companies are among the representatives of the Philippine Cinema in the 25th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Korea.
Death of Nintendo by Raya Martin, Cleaners by Karl Glenn Barit, How to Die Young in Manila by Petersen Vargas, and Kids on Fire by Kyle Nieva are part of the BIFF Official Selection.
Sheron Dayoc’s 6th Finger is the only Filipino project in Busan this year while 10 production companies are part of the Philippine Pavilion spearheaded by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP).
The FDCP is also the organizer of the Philippine Cinema Night as well as the sponsor of the webinar “Screen Talk: Asian Production Bounces Back” featuring FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño as one of the speakers.
“The Busan International Film Festival has been a crucial platform for the global track of the Filipino film industry. This year, the FDCP continues to be one with the BIFF in promoting Asian Cinema especially amid the COVID-19 crisis,” said Diño.
The BIFF, which runs until Oct. 30, has limited film screenings in Busan while the programs and events concurrent with the festival have been migrated online.
