  • Launching in 1980, BISFF is the first short film festival in Korea and has provided the opportunity to create for filmmakers under the name ‘Korea Short Film Festival’ and ‘Busan Asian Short Film Festival’ has undergone tremendous change and renewal. BISFF aspire to aesthetics in short films and has firmly established itself as the place to discover new, talented directors. We also are to bring the World’s latest and hidden gem shorts in spotlight. In terms, BISFF will be a remarkable opportunity for professionals and enthusiasts from across the nation and the around the world. 
     
    Undoubtedly, BISFF has been introduced one special country from 2011 with the ‘The Guest Country’ section. The Guest Country section takes a look at the diverse films that each country produces to provide an opportunity to understand the culture and society of that country beyond the art field of cinema through short films. With the domestic and international growth of our film festival, we have seen this program bring more in-depth and diverse aspects of the guest country and its film culture to the audience and firmly believe that this program has been generated wide interest in not only the short films, but also its cinema and culture. There are the guest countries from 2011: France, China, Spain, and Sweden. We selected 2016’s guest country: Austria and from 2015, we made the 'Prequel of Country' section, as can be inferred by its title, is an introduction for the next year’s Guest Country event which is one of the main programs of the BISFF. 

    As a main program of the festival, The Guest Country Program section of 2016, Austria, is represented by the experimental film genre, which is also called underground film or avant-garde cinema. Of the countries introduced through the Guest Country program in the past, only Spain of horror films, and Sweden of black humour showed a specialized genre character. But no country has ever shown as much weight as Austria in being defined as the center of a specific genre, namely, experimental film.
     
    BISFF will prepare a special section which will be shown selected 6 remarkable short works from Canada as ‘Prequel of Canada’ section in 2016 and then we would like to introduce mainly Canadian short films in 2017 as the Guest Country section. We strongly believe this special screening event will bring audiences to new experience in watching films in quality and cinematic diversity. Moreover, we will screen other Canadian short films in competition section. It will be one or two films selected and decided exactly around March 2016.
