At the 26th BiFan, “Squid Game” earned the Best Series Film Award. The 26th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival’s Best Series Film award went to the Netflix original series “Squid Game.”
The first category that BIFAN added this year is the Series Film Award. “The fusion of culture and technology is generating numerous forms of visual storytelling,” stated Executive Chairman Shin Cheol. The Series Film Awards were created and given out because videos should be considered to be movies, he added.
Executive Chairman Shin Cheol stated, “From an industry standpoint, one of the methods to optimize profitability was to define a movie as one that lasts less than two hours. The time to act is now.
Additionally, he questioned, “If “Harry Potter” or “Star Wars”, having so many parts, are movies, why isn’t ‘Squid Game’ a movie? It is a special suggestion from Bucheon, Korea.”
This year’s film festival was actually made by BIFAN to be one of evolution and growth rather than a return to pre-pandemic times. A program was formed to screen the series in addition to creating and presenting the Series Film Awards. The phrase “Korean Fantastic: Series Killer” In a world where the distinctions between films, dramas, and television series are vanishing, represented the question in answer to the call for a new definition of film.
