Tickets can be bought on the BIFF website or via the official app. Remaining tickets also can be bought on-site.

Meanwhile, the BIFF also disclosed the roster for its Actor's House special program on Monday.

This year, Gang Dong-won, Lee Young-ae, Ha Jung-woo and Han Ji-min will take part in the program to talk about their acting careers.

Actor's House is an event in which leading Korean actors share intimate stories of their acting careers with the audience, unlike other talk sessions where actors primarily discuss their movies that are screening at the festival.

The program was newly launched in 2021, with Uhm Jung-hwa, Han Ye-ri, Jun Jong-seo, Cho Jin-woong, Lee Je-hoon and Byun Yo-han sharing their stories.

The proceeds from Actor's House will go to Save the Children, an international humanitarian aid organization for children. Tickets for Actor’s House are 8,000 won.
