The film festival took place alongside the Green Life Show, an environmental experience exhibition, and ESG International Conference. Held at the Busan Cinema Center, Blue Planet Future Festival screened 39 documentaries from 20 countries.
According to the Global Networks For Blue Planet, the host and organizer of the event, a total of 14,787 people participated in the five-day event from Aug. 11 to 15 despite surging COVID-19 cases. About 2,000 people attended the opening ceremony and screening, and there were six Q&A sessions with directors, such as Lithuanian Rugile Barzdziukaite, in which filmmakers and moviegoers could discuss serious issues.
In an effort to help attendees connect with nature, three outdoor screenings were conducted at Busan Citizen’s Park.
The film festival also had video content and environmental posters on display.
“The recognition this event has received is significant as it is one of the few film festivals that focuses on the environment,” said Chang Jeguk, the organizing committee chairman said. “We will continue to work hard finding new films and content for next year‘s event.”
