Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz was chosen as one of the jurors of the New Currents section of the 22nd Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, from Oct. 12 to 21.

Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone heads the jury, which also includes French cinematographer Agnès Godard, Iranian auteur Bahman Ghobadi and South Korean filmmaker Sun-woo Jang.

The Busan website calls Diaz “a multiartist and the ideological father of the New Philippine cinema.”


The New Currents program is a competition that showcases “up-and-coming Asian filmmakers’ first and second features.”

According to its website, the New Currents section has always been “a place to meet young Asian directors [whose] films [boast] broad genres and themes wrapped up with uniqueness and passion.” —BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
