BUSAN, South Korea – The 17th Busan International Film Festival has unveiled this year’s official poster.
The poster is based on the work of one of the greatest artists in KOREA; HONG Purume’s painting ‘Opening His Light’ and designed by BIFF Artistic director, CHOI Soondae.
The original work is a visualization of light in the beginning of time. It represents the theme of god’s “creation” and “freedom”. The “light” in the poster symbolizes the world of light recreated by the film camera and the projector. The contrast between the black ink and the void directly speaks to the festival’s dynamic force.
HONG Purume is a professor of fine arts at Kosin University in Busan. She is one of the most important artists in Korean art and is internationally affiliated with Mimesis Contemporary Art Gallery, Switzerland and LES OREADES Gallery, Moscow.
The 17th Busan International Film Festival will take place from October 4 to 13, 2012.
