Seok-geun Oh
Korea (South)

Korean Film Council



A Busan-born filmmaker, Oh directed 1993’s “The 101st Proposal” in Seoul’s old film capital, Chungmuro, but returned to his hometown to become the first GM of the Busan International Film Festival and then director of the Busan Film Commission. That organization was notably proactive in its Asian outreach. Under a new government in 2018, Oh was drafted to heal the Korean Film Council (KOFIC), the state regulator and financier that was badly tarnished by collaboration with a previous ministerial policy of blacklisting artistic talent. Having started on that mission, Oh is now using his remaining term at KOFIC to put his master plan of establishing a pan-Asian film-industry network into effect. Don’t be surprised if his next move makes him that organization’s first head.
