Ever since opening its door to the world, Incheon has been the center of emigration and immigration. In 1902, the first ship of Korean emigrants departed from Incheon for Hawaii. Now more than a hundred years later, Incheon has become the largest gateway to Korea. Through harbors and airports, a countless number of people leave and come to Korea every day. The city holds a century's worth of memories; embracing all the excitement, grief, and cultures of all travelers. These diverse identities travel into the city and mingle. Incheon, the welcoming city, is the perfect home to host the Diaspora Film Festival.
