The Busan International Film Festival is being celebrated this week. Khyentse Norbu’s film has opened the BIFF, which is a festival screening mostly Asian films.

There are however films from many other countries that will be screened at the Busan International Film Festival. This event is a platform promoting Asian films as well as international ones.

The South Korean film festival has opened this year with a film directed by Norbu, a Bhutanese monk. The movie is called "Vara: A Blessing" and it was produced by Nanette Nelms. In an interview she gave to AFP, Nelms said: "When we received word that 'Vara' had been selected as the opening film, both Khyentse Norbu and I were incredulous". Norbu will not be attending the Busan International Film Festival because he is in retreat. “Vara” is undoubtedly one of the most original Asian films to have been presented at this 18th Busan Film Festival.

Films from about 70 countries have been entered at the Busan International Film Festival. There will even be a Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven” screened. This remake will have Ken Watanabe as the main character. The Asian cinema industry has embraced the trend of remakes. This is proof that Asian films are becoming more and more versatile.

"The industry continues to grow very quickly, while we've been surprised by its reach world-wide," said Busan film festival director Lee Yong-Kwan."The 'discovery of up-and-coming directors' is a particular emphasis in this year's programme," he added. "It's perhaps the strongest effort yet by BIFF in its search for the identity of Asian cinema, and for what the future holds for this fast-developing industry."
