    BIFF Festival Director LEE Yong Kwan opened the event with a message of welcome and thanks. “It’s a wonderful thing to have these leading investment funds presenting here at the Busan International Film Festival today. It is one of our goals to support filmmakers to find financing and distribution means, in addition to screening their films in our festival.”

    CJ Venture Investment is this month just starting a KW20 billion fund that aims to invest in films and performances such as musicals. The fund will run until Oct. 2018.
