Korea's Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) last week.

A press release from PiFan on Friday announced that PiFan and HKIFF signed the agreement on June 24, establishing a partnership through which both parties will collaborate and build a network among genre filmmakers and their respective industries.

The agreement will focus on supporting each other's project markets in various ways including in financial and educational aspects.
