The Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) will resume projects that had been suspended due to COVID-19 for the first time in two years, stretching this year's festival.

BIFF's "Asia Film Academy" will be renamed "CHANEL X BIFF Asian Film Academy" with the sponsorship of luxury brand Chanel starting this year. The Asian Film Academy is an educational program designed to discover and network the next generation of Asian films.

BIFF said, "With Chanel's sponsorship, we have a financial foundation to educate young Asian filmmakers in a wide and innovative way. We will provide more educational opportunities for Asian female filmmakers to reflect Chanel's perspective, which has continued interest in the relationship between women and movies." Chanel participated in supporting the film industry, including the Tribeca Film Festival's "Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women's Film In Program" and the Toronto Canadian Film Festival's "Channel Women's Writers Network." The Academy selects about 20 young films from Asian countries and conducts short film production, workshops, mentoring, and master classes. The finished work will be officially screened during the BIFF period. Participants will be accepted by the 8th of next month.

The Asian film fund, which BIFF supports production, will also start again in two years.
