In 2015, the late Kim Jiseok, the former BIFF program director, planned the Asian Cinema 100 for the 20th BIFF edition. For the program, he requested film professionals around the world to recommend 10 of the best Asian films for inclusion in the top 100 list; a list which would be updated every five years. BIFF prepared the first update in 2020 that reflected the opinions of 140 film professionals throughout the world.
