“JCP: NEXT EDITION” Jury Comments
The “JCP: NEXT EDITION” is a project pitching event to select an international project for the feature film production program “Jeonju Cinema Project”. On March 5th, the selection committee gathered around to select the projects for the 2nd “JCP: NEXT EDITION”, which will be held during the Jeonju Project Market. The selection committee was greatly encouraged with the applicant’s enthusiastic response of submitting 26 projects, which is twice the number of submissions than last year. The selection committee also took pride in receiving more attention from all over the world including Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe. There was a large number of interesting proposals, from projects with common themes portrayed with unique narrative structures to projects that challenge the clichés of traditional screenwriting.
The selection committee decided to follow the 1st “JCP: NEXT EDITION” selection criteria, as last year’s pre-selection was set as a precedent. Five projects are selected based on the submitted documents. Electrocute by Gastón Solnicki (Argentina), After Time by Peter Bo Rappmund (USA/Korea), Outside Noise by Ted Fendt (Germany/Austria/USA), Laotian Bride – Border Bride by Wang Bing (Hong Kong/France/Netherlands), and Do Fish Sleep with Their Eyes Open? by Nele Wohlatz (Brazil/ Argentina), were selected to pitch at the 2nd “JCP: NEXT EDITION”.
Director Gastón Solinick´s project Electrocute and director Nele Wohlatz’s project Do Fish Sleep with Their Eyes Open? received a high score for its interesting theme, innovating storytelling and the strong achievements verified by the director’s previous films. The project After Time by the director Peter Bo Rappmund captivated the selection committee for the timeliness of depicting the division of the Korean Peninsula, the strong merits of the project’s production method and characteristic which enables the director to exhibit its own signature style. Outside Noise was selected for its uniqueness, the project was shown as one of a kind which the director Ted Fendt can solely create. Wang Bing’s project Laotian Bride – Border Bride’s dramatic story, the amount of time and energy devoted and the director’s capability of creating a sturdy work persuaded the selection committee. All the selected projects gave the conviction that they will turn into great films.
The five projects will be presented at the 2nd “JCP: NEXT EDITION”, which will be held on May 6th. We hope that the directors will strengthen and develop their projects further. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the applicants for enthusiastically submitting their great projects.
