The other beneficiary of the renowned honor - - held for first or second-time Asian chiefs - - was a South Korean film about a youthful craftsman who experiences a progression of apparently paltry however bizarre occasions.

Indian movie Shivamma is chief Jaishankar Aryar's element debut and was praised by the celebration's adjudicators. The other champ, A Wild Roomer, is South Korean movie producer Lee Jeong-hong's most memorable element film.

It packed away two different awards at BIFF, including the Organization for the Advancement of Asia Pacific Film grant and the KBS Autonomous film grant.

BIFF returned at full power this year after South Korea lifted its pandemic limitations, highlighting 242 movies from 71 nations, including 88 world debuts.
