Busan International Kids & Youth Film Festival (BIKY)
BIKY serves as the focal point for the international Kids and Youth network with the film, video, culture involving children and teenagers. Rather than simply watching movies, BIKY aim to learn about generosity and diversity by cultural/cinematic mediation. This is also the role of enhancing the image of the "Busan-Creative of Film Designated UNESCO in 2014". In today's modern society where the environment of Kids & Youth media contents become sluggish, BIKY aims to promote diverse films and expand the level of cultural sophistication by providing a variety of films and providing equal opportunity.
In "Finding Myself", we take a journey to discover our real identities. By finding ourselves and clarifying our gender identities, we can grow more as individuals. After understanding who and what we are, we realize that we've already grown up.
In "Staying Together" we focus mainly on harmony and conflict in a community. Each person grows and develops with family love and healthy friendships, and so we hope that we can live well with others.
In this section we also consider how to love others.
Embrace the Difference
In "Embrace the Difference", we think about how to respect and embrace differences. There are many conflicts in the world, most of which are caused by conflicting differences, and they often cause serious social problems. But we are going to come to terms with our differences and embrace that this is the reason why there are so many kinds of beautiful, unique people in the world.
Beyond the Boundary
In "Beyond the Boundary", we show exciting and meaningful adventures. we also try to show some amazing future scenery. We can see new worlds as we try to cross barriers, and in this section our audience visualize a new world through our films.
A collection of films under one specific theme every year. This year theme is "The world that I dream"!
