Ⅰ. Focus in Asia

This year, FOCUS in Asia is divided into two categories. In one part, it consists of a talk on criticism associated with the special program "Topography of Asian Documentary: 50 Voices of Korean Documentary" and a forum on Korean documentary's origins and genealogy to lay the foundation for Korean documentary film research. In another part, it has the opportunity to grasp the characteristics and tendencies of the video works of five acclaimed authors, filmmakers based in Asia, by a screening of them. "Topography of Asian Documentary" will be prepared as a long-term project for the promotion of Asian documentary research and criticism.
