BIFF Attendance Rises Over 27,000 from 2016


The Busan International Film Festival concluded successfully yesterday, finishing its 22nd edition with a bounce back in attendance from 2016.

This year’s BIFF opened on October 12th with 300 films from 76 countries, up one film from 2016.

This year’s festival saw an attendance of 192,991 — a rise from 165,149 theater goers but still very shy of the record 227,377 visitors in 2015.

The festival included 99 World Premieres and 31 International Premieres.
