Show Summary Details


Between 1996 and 2005, Pusan became one of Asia's most influential film festivals. This was spurred by Korean national, regional, and local forces working together to lift the global visibility of Korean cinema, and to highlight its distinctive identities and connections with East Asian popular culture. This book shows how national and regional film industries can start from scratch and become influential in global film circles in a short time, leading to better worldwide distribution of national and regional cinema.
