  - Commentary on Selection -

 

A total of 39 applicants were interviewed by the selection committee in the final stage of the application process for the 2023 International Film Business Academy at Busan Asian Film School.

 

In the course of these interviews we were struck with the wide spectrum of experience and clear potential shown by all of the applicants. Choosing only 18 among this group to participate in the IFBA was a challenge, and we had no choice but to turn down many accomplished and deserving applicants.

 

Final decisions were based on applicants’ prior experience and filmography, understanding of the field, communication skills, performance in the interview, and the originality and potential of their submitted projects.

 

We encourage those who did not get selected this year to continue gaining experience in the field, and all are welcome to apply again in the future. To the selected fellows, we congratulate you and look forward to having you in Busan in the coming year.
