Busan International Transmedia Forum

@Busan International Short Film Festival 2024
(BITForum@BISFF 2024)

The cinema, which was born at the end of the 19th century and has developed over the century as the core of the visual arts, exerting a powerful influence on human cognition, is going through a trajectory of upheaval in various aspects such as media, aesthetics, technology, and industry in the 21st century. Some say it is the end of cinema, while others present bright prospects for new possibilities for 21st century cinema. In either case, it seems clear that 21st-century cinema has entered a new phase. Filmmakers, audiences, and researchers all concerned about how new film technologies will change the inherent aesthetics and reception of cinema.
This year's BITForum@BISFF 2024 opens with explore the possibilities and limitations of 21st century cinema through the keywords of the real and the virtual. It will then the new short film by Bill Morrison, who has been expanding the techniques and forms of found-footage filmmaking.
The first session explores the new cinematic horizons that artificial intelligence, virtual production, and virtual humans are opening up in 21st century cinema.
The second session will focus on ecosystems and explore where the landscape of 21st century cinema is changing.
The third session will ask questions about the aesthetic endeavors of found footage in film and reality.
We hope that this year's BITForum@BISFF 2024 will be a valuable opportunity for international experts in various fields such as stereoscopic cinema, XR, virtual production, and AI to come together and share their opinions on cinema in the post-cinema era of the 21st century.
