Pusan and Mumbai festivals sign MOU for mutual support.

The Pusan International Film Festival and the Mumbai International Film Festival have signed an MOU about cooperation to link the Korean and Indian film industries and support each other’s festivals.

Signed by Pusan fest director Lee Yong-kwan and Mumbai fest head Srinivasan Narayanan in Berlin, the MOU is to be officially announced tonight (Feb 14) at the Korean Film Night reception.

“Our festivals have previously cooperated on getting VIP guests and stars since it’s really when the stars start to move that people get to know a country’s films. Now our ties are formalized and hopefully our festivals can be liaisons between our respective industries,” said Pusan programmer Cho Young-Jung.
