The 14th Busan International Kids and Youth Film Festival 2019 hosted and supervised by Busan Intl. Kids and Youth Film Festival organizing committee will be held for seven days from the 9th to the 15th of July in Busan.
BIKY is the only festival that has provided a venue for children and teenagers to communicate through various films from all around the world.
It is the non-competitive image-cultural festival for the children and teenagers of all ages where they can join and empathize with others.
BIKY has one competitive section called ‘Ready~Action!’ for films directed by children and teenagers. BIKY aims to discover films by gifted children or young directors and develop new contents in the relevant fields for the future.
The opening film is the Dutch movie Fight Girl (Vechtmeisje) by Johan Timmers.
This year’s BIKY festival will be the biggest yet, showcasing 176 films from 61 countries around the world. Kids will be hosting the awards ceremony themselves along with other events.
