Running in partnership with South Korea’s Busan Film Festival, BWFF will unspool pics from China, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and the U.S., and will feature a new competition for shorts, 20 of which are scheduled to screen.
Fest culminates with a martial arts retrospective hosted by helmer Haofeng Xu (“The Grandmaster,” “The Sword Identity”). Kudos will be presented at the fest’s closing night reception, and two winning shorts will be programmed at the Busan Film Festival in October. Closing pic is “Dangerous Liaisons.”
Fest runs at Chapman’s Marion Knott Studios in Orange, Calif.
