PIFF's Record Ticket Sales

2009/10/01 Source

With the opening of Pusan International Film Festival's box office on Sept. 23, nearly half the general screenings have sold out. Of the record 355 films in the program, 159 sold out in less than an hour. Quickest to go was the Guest Visit screening of "I Come With the Rain", starring Korea's top star Lee Byung-hun, selling out in just 38 seconds.

Jang Jin's "Good Morning President", the opening film, screened each year at the 5000-seat outdoor theater at the Busan Yachting Center, sold out in 1 minute and 16 seconds. Other quick sellers were "Air Doll", starring Bae Doona, and Japanese actor YAKUSHO Koji's directing debut "Toad's Oil".

For those who weren't fast enough, don't dismay. 20% of total tickets will be available at Temporary Box Offices open at screening venues during the festival period. Pre-festival tickets can be bought via the Internet at Open the link, the new mobile ticketing service Mobile PIFF, in nationwide GS25 convenient stores, and at the Busan Bank.
