Asian Film Awards to Relocate From Hong Kong to Busan
The Asian Film Awards are to relocate from their current home in Hong Kong to Busan.
The glitzy red carpet event will also shift from March, when it usually coincides with the Hong Kong film festival and the FilMart rights market, to October, to align with the Busan International Film Festival. The next edition will be held in October 2020.
The change was announced Friday, 4 October, in Busan. Organizers were at pains to explain that the exit from Hong Kong was not connected to the current civilian unrest in the city.
