Journalist's Take on Busan International Film Festival Boycott
Personally, theSeoulite thinks the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) still pulled off a great lineup of films this year despite the boycotts by filmmakers and film organizations. If you want to go get your film watching on, then by all means go.
And if you want another take on the political squabbles that crippled the festival's full potential, here's a great take by local reporter Joseph Kim.
"The controversy worsened last year after state support for the festival was also cut through the Korean Film Council. These actions were seen as "political retaliation" against BIFF and a way to impose censorship on the country's booming film industry."
