    Had a really wonderful time at BIKY. Everything exceeded my expectations and everyone was extremely friendly, well organized, and accommodating, and there was always opportunity to not only network with other filmmakers, but also the audience and festival staff. Would love to participate again.

  • BIKY is an incredible festival with an excellent organization. The screenings are held in large modern cinema halls, and the children's audience is very active and engaged. As an international guest in Busan, I was warmly welcomed. I have made many useful professional contacts with various filmmakers from around the world. I recommend the festival!

    BIKY is an exceptional festival that places children at it's centre. Children from around the world are inspired, encouraged and extended by the opportunities offered to them by BIKY. The open hearted nature and priorities of the organisers are reflected in the relevance children find in the festival. Not only does BIKY build media literacy in children it also builds international communities by connecting children from around the world. Thank you to everyone at BIKY for nurturing our children.
