The Busan International Film Festival concluded successfully yesterday, finishing its 23rd edition with a slight rise in attendance from 2017.

This year’s BIFF opened on October 4th with 324 films from 79 countries, up 24 films from 2017.

This year’s festival saw an attendance of 195,081 — a slight rise from 192,991 theater goers despite Typhoon Kong-rey disrupting the first weekend but still very shy of the record 227,377 visitors in 2015.

The festival included 115 World Premieres and 25 International Premieres.
