The 2024 Busan Food Film Festa will take place from June 28 to 30 at the Busan Cinema Center. As the name suggests, the festival will offer two joyful experiences: Film and gourmet food. Celebrating its eighth anniversary this year, the BFFF is a prominent film and food festival in Busan, providing visitors with a feast for the eyes and stomach.

Under the theme of “Rice,” the festival aims to share in-depth stories about film, food, and rice, presenting a variety of genres of films in three categories: Rice: Ordinary Life, Rice: Beyond the Ordinary and the BFFF Choice Movie Dining.

In the Ordinary Life section, movie-goers will enjoy stories about rice in daily life through the Korean movie “Our Season” and the Japanese movie “The Zen Diary.” 

In Asian culture, rice is a staple crop that is always on the table, so its importance is sometimes neglected. However, in the Beyond the Ordinary section, movies like “Tasty Ending,” “Off The Menu,” and the remastered version of “Chiwhaseon” will shed light on other stories about rice. 

In the BFFF Choice Movie Dining section, movie-goers will enjoy international films like “The House of No Man” from Vietnam, the American-South Korean drama “Coming Home Again,” and the French movie “The Taste of Things.” Additionally, “Italian Chefs,” introduced in Korea for the first time, showcases the unique food and lives of Italian chefs.

Not only film lovers but also foodies can enjoy the festival with a variety of food events.

The Food Terrace invites food experts to share their knowledge as audience members dine on food from the movies. Anyone who wants to enjoy a beautiful night view, delicious food and a river cruise can join the Night Food Terrace. The Juju Club will invite film enthusiasts to learn from the festival programmers about their intentions and stories behind the films. At the Food Salon, experts in the food industry will share their knowledge and insights with participants about culinary cultures over drinks and food.

The opening ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. on June 28. Visitors can enjoy live performances and a screening of the movie “Tasty Ending.” Admission is free of charge and open on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets for special events and film screenings are available through the Busan Cinema Center website.
