23rd Busan International Film Festival

23rd Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) was celebrated from the 4th to 13th of October at Busan Cinema Center in Busan, Korea. From awards presented I would like to mention that The Actor and Actress of the Year honors went to 2 actresses (!): Lee Ju-yeong for her role in Maggie (Korea) and Choi Hee-seo in Our Body (Korea). And Maggie by Yi Okseop won Citizen Critics Award. As a sidenote I’d like to let you know that an Estonian movie The Little Comrade By Moonika Siimets (original title: Seltsimees laps) won a BNK Busan Bank Award. Not to mention that not so long ago it won also prizes at the Waterloo Historical Film Festival in Belgium (18-21 October 2018) (source:http://wahff.070.be/labo/).
