2009 Pusan International Film Festival: Sights and Sounds of Busan

I will wrap up my coverage of this year's Pusan International Film Festival with an assortment of pictures and video I made during the festival. Below is a Flickr slideshow of photos and some videos I shot that I hope will give at least a small sense of what it was like to be there, and some of the experiences Busan offered beyond the films.

Not to assume that everyone speaks english but are most of these films subtitled in english? I'm going to be in Busan at the same time as the festival and I can't seem to find any information on the site regarding subtitling and don't want to be supremely disappointed when I arrive. Thanks!

Yes, almost all non-English language films are subtitled in English. They show films from all over the world, not just Korean or Asian films. The festival is truly "international."

There is no info at the moment, because they have not yet announced their titles (that will happen in early Sept.) When there is a schedule available, simply look at the top and follow the coding on the schedule that will tell you about subtitles. As I said, this will not be an issue for at least 95% of the films, so you can go with no worries. Even if you are unsure, they have a fantastic volunteer staff who will gladly help you out. Have fun!
