It's all glitter, glamour and gossip in October when the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) takes centre stage. Not just about movies – 300 films from 76 countries in 2017 – the real buzz centres on which Korean female starlet will wear the most revealing dress on the red carpet.

Screenings are at six theatres, including Busan Cinema Center, a magnificent complex with the world's longest cantilever structure. The 127,000 LED lights streaming across its concave surface create an urban architectural spectacle at night.
