Korea Cinemascape for Shorts

"Korea Cinemascape´, that shows the different trends of Korean independent films not including in Korean Competition, presents the new films of the veteran directors who made more than three feature films, such as Stranger than Jesus by Yeo Kyundong, roooom by Choe Equan, Jeju Note by Min Hwanki and etc. We select the new films; Hello Dayoung, Omok Girl by Ko Bongsoo and Baek Seunghwa known as film directors at Jeonju International Film Festival, and present the other films not only different from the general tendency of independent films, but also creative beyond the bounds of convention of commercial feature films. The short film category in the section of Korea Cinemascape presents the short films selected by the similar standards to feature film category, and it is full of the films producing the opportunities to observe how today´s young directors create their works with various angles, independently of the competition section. The independent cinema, in short films as well as feature film, has the virtues in presenting the original idea of creators free from the conventions of making film. In addition, we prepare the films already opened to public but worth ruminating on their themes once more Steel Rain by Yang Woo-suk, 1987: When the Day Comes by Jang Joon-hwan, Heart Blackened by Jeong Ji-Woo, Little Forest by Yim Soon-rye, and invite the audience to the the screenings of them in Jeonju Dome and also in other venues."
