The Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) held annually in South Korea is one of the most important film festivals that is held in Asia.

The 15th Pusan International Film Festival will be held from October 7-15 in Pusan, the festival announced on Friday. Along with the main festival, the Asian Film Market will run from Oct. 10-13. The inaugural festival in 1996 was also the first international film festival that was ever held in Korea. A major focus of the festival is the introduction of new films and directors, particularly those from Asia. The festival is noted for its appeal to young people and aims to develop and promote young talent. It also attracts a large youthful audience and has a red carpet where stars from South Korea and Asia parade before the cameras. It lacks the glamour of the Cannes or Venice film festivals but does an excellent job of showcasing and promoting Asian films and talent.

The Pusan International Film Festival is organised in various sections- Programmes:
Gala Presentation, A Window on Asian Cinema, New Currents, Korean Cinema Today, Korean Cinema Retrospective, Wide Angle, Open Cinema, Flash Forward, Midnight Passion, Special Programs in Focus.

A number of awards are handed out each year, including:
New Currents Award, Sonje Award, PIFF Mecenat Award, Woonpa Award, Fipresci Award, NETPAC Award, PSB/KNN Award, Korean Cinema Award, Asian Filmmaker of the Year.
