This past October, Visiting Assistant Professor Renate Ferro was an invited speaker at the Busan International Film Festival Conference held in Busan, South Korea. The conference brought together artists, scholars, and industry specialists to focus on the cross-disciplinary topics that contemporary cinema engages, particularly those that intersect with science, communication, new media, and cultural and societal reflections. Ferro sat on a panel titled Film, Design, and Convergence, where she gave a presentation that addressed the expanded convergence of new media art with time-based film.

The conference was held during the Busan International Film Festival, which is Asia's largest. The festival, which included the screening of more than 300 films, aims to continue the development of Asian cinema and highlight independent and fringe films from the region.

On the return trip from South Korea, Ferro shared her work with students and faculty at Dongguk University in Seoul. She also took a gallery tour with former students Sunny Kim (B.F.A. '12), Soyun Monica Shim (B.F.A. &'11), and Rachel Shim (B.F.A. '11) while in Seoul.
