  • In 1980, the BISFF launched with the aim of creating the film-making friendly environment and finding talented film professionals. It has introduced many different kinds of films, including 8mm and independent films made by students and general public. Many young talents in those days are now taking the lead in the Korean cinema. The BISFF renamed itself as the Busan Asian Short Film Festival on May 19, 2000, intending to extend its horizon into Asia even getting entries from abroad and introducing excellent but not known Asian directors, which was the first try in Korea. Once again the BISFF changed its name into the Busan International Short Film Festival in 2010, expanding to the world, beyond Asia. Especially since 2012, the BISFF has started the program ‘Guest Country’, trying to enhance the characteristics of this festival. The BISFF has been introducing short films and cultures of the Guest Country. In addition to the competition section, various sections have given audience the chances to see the trend in a short film in the world and to guess its future. There are not many international short film festivals in Asia, the BISFF is expected to be a window to introduce Korean and Asian short films to the world and vice versa.

    This program brings together two filmmakers from different countries who will introduce theirs works ask questions about each other’s cinematic world and engage in an in depth discussion before inviting the audience to participate. Unlike most other masterclasses, the program consists of vivid testimonies from the two directors, not to mention a discussion about their works and creative practices. The two participating directors will explain their works and share their creative experiences as well as future plans. Two filmmakers will participate which is Koen Van Sande from this year’s Guest Country, Belgium and Joao Paulo Miranda Maria from Brazil featured in the “Focus on Brazil” program. We look forward to witnessing the two artists’ exchange of ideas about filmmaking.
