This year marks 9 years of Operation Kino. It is a project funded by Busan International Short Film Festival and the city of Jung-gu, Busan, to support production of short documentary films by film majors. In 2020, “The 9th Operation Kino” has selected 6 teams and provided 1.2 million won to each team. In the last 7 weeks, each team has created a 15-minute documentary to be presented during the festival.
Several changes have been made to this year’s film festival to highlight the importance of this project. First, the Operation Kino films will be moved from special screening to the competition section. This will allow for more the audience to pay closer attention to these films. We have also created the Agora Award, which will be selected by guest directors from around the world. We hope that this will give an opportunity for Operation Kino participants to appreciate the encouragement and support from their predecessors.
