The horror genre was the concept for this year's four official posters. 
The transformed image of BIFAN's symbol, the Cell of Fantasy, was metaphorically derived from the character of Freddy 
Krueger from Wes CRAVEN's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). 
The thick fog and dreamlike lighting effects intensify the surreal atmosphere of fluctuating between dreams and reality, 
and the visuals create a sense of anticipation by capturing BIFAN's theme of love, fantasy, and adventure.

By doing this, the identity of BIFAN is shown in a straightforward manner while the consistent appearance of the 
Cell of Fantasy as the main character in the posters tells a story. When you see the various images of the Cell of Fantasy shown 
along with an ominous background that is reminiscent of Elm Street, it feels as if you're watching a movie.
