Strong Women’s Focus at This Year’s BIFAN
Notably, this year’s ‘Bucheon Choice’ competition features an even split between male and female filmmakers, including Coralie FARGEAT's French thriller Revenge and the premiere of YU Eun-jeong’s homegrown Ghost Walk. Special programs will include a retrospective on JUNG Woo-sung, a focus on the three Hollywood horror masters and a look at landmark women-led sci-fi films.
‘3X3 EYES: A Special Program Featuring the Three Horror Masters and Their Eyes’ will comprise a trio of works from George A. ROMERO, Tobe HOOPER and Wes CRAVEN, the man behind the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise from which the year’s BIFAN artwork is inspired.
‘The Women Who Leapt through Time: The Representation of Women in Sci-Fi Films’ includes masterworks such as Ridley SCOTT’s Alien and a special ‘black and chrome’ version of George MILLER’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
This year’s BIFAN will run from July 12 to 22.
