Fifteenth Annual PIFF Getting the Star Treatment

The Pusan International Film Festival just keeps getting flashier. Celebrity film-makers and performers will make 2010′s PIFF even more irresistible for the motion picture industry.

The Pusan International Film Festival said on its website Wednesday that the annual weeklong event in the southern South Korean city will open on Oct. 7 with Zhang’s “Under the Hawthorn Tree,” a love story set in China’s decade-long ultra-leftist Cultural Revolution that will premiere in the country next week.

(…)

The eight-day program will close with “Camellia,” a three-part film shot in the festival’s host city by directors from South Korea, Japan and Thailand.

Overall, the festival will feature 103 world premieres — 82 for feature productions and 21 for short films — including special sections on Czech and Kurdish cinema.
