With a whos-who of filmmakers and stars to step foot on the red carpet, the 26th Busan International Film Festival kicks off tonight.
Showcasing 2-hundred-23 films from 70 countries,.. it starts with Korean director Im Sang-soo's "Heaven: To the Land of Happiness."
The festival ends on October 15th.
Only half of the available theater seat will be available due to the pandemic, but the openings and closing ceremonies along with other on-site events will go ahead as usual.
The opening ceremony starts at 6PM, Korea time.
It'll be co-hosted by actor Song Joong-ki and actress Park So-dam.
