Celebrating 17 years of Mystery and Imagination

Since starting 1997, Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan) had a vision to give representation to marginalized genres in film. Although all genres such as comedy, drama, and action will be represented, PiFan's objective is to highlight horror, psycho-thriller, sci-fi, and sexual themed films which are all marginalized in Asia. From its launch, Koreans have labeled these films at PiFan as "genre films." Although PiFan has received a lot of backlash from conservative Koreans, it not only persevered, but it has been crowned the biggest genre film festival in Asia. It doesn't stop there. PiFan is continually making improvements for the fan experience. This year, subway line 7 opened to make all the major PiFan sites a few minutes away from the exits. One of PiFan's goal was to make the festival a lot more enjoyable and mobile, and with this new line 7, we'll see a lot more "Happy Audiences." PiFan 2013 has its tweaks and improvements, but it holds to its principle of giving light to marginalized film genres. Welcome to PiFan 2013, where you'll find yourself in another World!
