Crisis-hit Busan film festival has calm opening

6 October 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A typhoon failed to dampen the event’s opening night as anticipated protests were muted.

The 21st Busan International Film Festival (Biff) had a relatively calm opening on Thursday night (Oct 6), despite rumours of protest and a typhoon that had battered the city the day before.

Rumours swirled in the run-up to the opening ceremony that the local film industry would stage protests against political interference at the festival, as well as to support former Biff executives, who are currently being prosecuted. A heavy police presence around the main venue, the Busan Cinema Centre, suggested that local authorities were on high alert.

However, only one protest was spotted as guests streamed up the red carpet; actor Kim Eui-suk, who appears in Zhang Lu’s opening film A Quiet Dream, held up a sign saying “Independent Film Festival for Busan”. Kim is also on Biff’s jury for the award for actor and actress of the year.

‘ The Midnight After ‘ Starring Simon Yam, Finally Gets DVD Release Date

17 May 2016 4:44 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Well Go USA Entertainment has announced that Fruit Chan’s genre-bending The Midnight After will be available on DVD and digitally on 21 June 2016.

The film premiered at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival and was the recipient of numerous prestigious nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Cinematography at the Hong Kong Film Awards, where it also won in the Best Original Score category.

Based on a cult internet novel by Hong Kong writer “Mr. Pizza“, The Midnight After follows a group of 16 bus passengers who find that, in the time between entering and emerging from a traffic tunnel, the city was struck by an apocalyptic event.


The innovative Chan sculpts a blend of horror, comedy, mystery and sci-fi, flinging his unique cast of characters into increasingly bizarre scenarios.

The film received critical praise for its tone, most notably the blasé manner in which characters respond to the otherworldly circumstances they find themselves in. »

Film Review: ‘Book of Love’

2 May 2016 5:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taking a leaf from “84, Charing Cross Road,” Xue Xiaolu’s “Book of Love” centers on a Macau casino hostess and L.A. realtor who fall in love on paper rather than in the flesh. For a romantic comedy, there’s almost no spark or intimacy; instead, it boasts more gambling and swindling than Wong Jing’s “From Vegas to Macau” trilogy. But the emotional journeys of two opportunists losing their bearings in cities overrun by mainland big-spenders prove more engaging. Piggybacking on Xue’s sophomore hit “Finding Mr. Right,” the film, which reunites co-stars Tang Wei and Wu Xiubo, has secured releases in the U.S., U.K. and Australia, though its appeal may not translate to non-Chinese viewers.

Xue’s last film was a sleeper that grossed $79 million, cementing the romantic comedy as a most lucrative genre in China’s burgeoning commercial market. She set a trend by referencing »
