Busan West Film Festival Introduces New Competition for Short Films

8A-2013-01-29-BusanWestFueled by the rapidly expanding influence and popularity of Korean filmmakers in Hollywood, Busan West, the annual pan-Asian film festival staged by Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in partnership with South Korea’s Busan International Film Festival (Asia’s largest film festival), is expanding its program and introducing a competition for the 2013 festival, set to take place March 8-10 on the Chapman campus in Orange, Calif.

Busan West presents a unique filmmaker showcase that brings select notable Asian films and filmmakers to the U.S. to create a new and unique platform for heightened recognition outside of Asia. New to the festival this year is a competition for short films — ‘Best Narrative Short’ and ‘Best Documentary Short’ Competition winners will be announced and awards presented at the festival’s Closing Night reception, March 10. The two winning short films will be programmed at the 2013 Busan International Film Festival in October. Contest details are available by emailing [email protected]

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
