    Ready Action
    As the proudest competitive section of BiKi, it is a collection of creative works made by 6 to 16-year-old kids and teens at home and abroad. As years go by, there are more entries with creative materials, and with variety of genres such as musicals and animations. However, most of the films still show that children go only to schools and institutes or are suffered from bullying at school whereas teachers and parents easily get angry or give stiff punishment for children's minor errors. What do you think the children want to tell us through the films? 2014, documentary section has been added.
    BiKi Feature Films
    BiKi named "Keun Narae" for feature films. "Keun Narae" literally means "Big Wings" in Korean. BiKi calls "Wings" for films because, with our imagination, we can fly in films just like we can fly in our dream or fantasy worlds. This year, we invites which fits perfectly to the slogan of the year, "Your dreams on the shelf", and various great films including. BiKi presents higher quality films with moving stories enticing not only kids but adults.
    BiKi Short Films
    It is a collection of invited short films at home and abroad. For better choice, it is categorized into two sections: for the lower and the upper grade schoolchildren. We also arrange several programs. For the lower grade schoolchildren who are having trouble with reading subtitles, voice actors perform the voice-over in live at the theater through "Live-dubbing". With "Barrier-Free", the contents of the screen will be explained for the hearing impaired and the blind viewers. Preschoolers can enjoy films with their parents in a warm and cozy environment at the "Tent Theater".
