Curating the programs for film festivals isn’t as easy as you might think. It requires a discerning eye, the ability to be impartial, critical, discerning and most of the absolute love of film.
During the Busan International Short Film Festival, I spoke with festival programmers Sébastien Simon about what it took for him to create the Hub of Asia Program, which was comprised of the Asian Americana program, The Death of Cinema(s), and the Rendez-vous AFiS, a special screening showcasing the work of young filmmakers from across the Asian diaspora who are learning the methods necessary to navigate the business side of the film industry at the Busan Asian Film
It’s interesting that there will now forever be a world “before the pandemic” and afterward, and this phenomenon as we know it has had significant and permanent impact on the lives of every single person on earth, and industry, including film.
During our discussion we shared our perspectives on the past, present and future state of Korean, North American and global cinema, and if there will ever come a time that cinema might die.
