Asia's biggest film festival has opened in South Korea.

This comes a year after a political scandal almost threatened its future.

Former president Park Geun-hye had blacklisted artists that were critical of the government.

Some filmmakers boycotted last year's event in protest.

Now with Park impeached and out of office, the stars have returned to the red carpet.

Al Jazeera’s Rob McBride reports from Busan.
