Korean films have had remarkable success both at home and abroad in recent years. They have gained widespread recognition and appreciation from the international community
at the forefront of the Korean wave, to the point where the term "K-movie" has been coined. This success was only possible because of the growing interest in short films and
the development of the short film industry, as short films are the film industry's backbone. BISFF has created a new section called “Korean Shorts” in order to continue to support
the growth and development of Korean short films. I hope that this will be a platform for audiences to see where Korean short films stand today by watching short films
with deep thematic consciousness and new experimental formats, as well as by meeting with various filmmakers.
The “Exceptional Perspectives” category features films that explore and experiment with new film formats. Some of the films tell stories using digital devices, while others use computer
programs to make images. Some films adopt game-like elements to help viewers feel more immersed in the film.
These approaches are actively used as storytelling tools to effectively convey the film's subject.
