SEOUL, Feb. 13 (Yonhap) — A movie industry task force on Friday lodged a protest over the authorities’ alleged attempt to oust the executive director of the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) for his decision to screen a politically sensitive documentary during last year’s film festival.

“The authorities should stop all attempts to damage the freedom of expression,” the task force composed of 70 organizations in the film industry said during a news conference in Seoul.
