The Entire Korean Film Community will boycott BIFF unless the Busan city guarantees the festival’s independence!
“Korean Film Group’s Emergency Committee for Defending BIFF’s Independence” strongly demand the followings;
– The mayor, SUH should resign from the BIFF’s organizing director immediately and agree to revision of the articles for the festival’s autonomy and independence!
– The city government must stop unjust interference on BIFF and withdraw the legal application for injunction against suspension of efficiency of 68 new committee advisors!
– SUH should make public apology for his continuous wrongful actions damaging the festival and promise that it will never happen again!
If the city government does not take significant actions on our demands above, there will be none of the Korean film community attending this year’s Busan International Film Festival.
