VIFF OF ASIAN MOVIES SUPPORTS BIFF
 

As directors of Vesoul’s International Film Festival of Asian Movies, Europe’s oldest Asian Film Festival,

we would like to prove once again our concern for everything happening to Busan’s International Film Festival

and renew our whole support for its current team members.

 

BIFF has become one of the most indispensable Film Festivals to focus on Asian productions.

It helped revealing new talents, focusing on many forgotten and brand new talents and has been a true inspiration for our own work.

 

One of its key successes what is perfect artistic independence to aboard all kind of (human) topics and issues, opening debates, teaching us about many undealt situations in local press and helping to open minds and eyes of our own audience members. If this would happen to be taken away by any kind of outside source and / or pressure, there is no more reason whatsoever for a festival’s existence. 

 

Through our programs, we reflect the other countries’ images. 


We support South Korea since our very first edition back in 1995, since we have always been warmly welcomed and well treated; we have many fond remembrances and developed many great friendships. We are proud to promote South Korea and its culture in any possible way.

 

We really would not want to add South Korea as being a country of no freedom of expression. 

 

We support BIF, because we support freedom of expression. We do so on our very own personal will and convictions, as we did when we denounced the terrorist attacks in France in 2015.


Sincerely yours


Martine and Jean-Marc THEROUANNE
