Preview

While PIFF sought to serve as a showcase for Asian cinema by strongly evoking transregional Asian identities, the festival also strove to promote the national film industry as a gateway to the global market for Korean films. This chapter reveals many of the tensions between national and local aspirations that helped shape PIFF's regional profile.
