Kim Jee-woon’s ‘Last Stand’ to open Busan West

Pic's star Arnold Schwarzenegger will hold Q&A

Chapman U.’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts is gearing up for this year’s Busan West Film Festival, reeling in a three-day slate of international talent and movies.

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 opens Friday with helmer Kim Jee-woon’s “The Last Stand,” followed by a Q&A with its star, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Kim will also receive Busan’s Icon Award.

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.
