Korean Competition For Shorts

There has been a steady stream of Korean short films being produced each year through the school system. This is a marker guaranteeing the quality of films.

12th Assistant Deacon, which was screened in 2014, became a big issue when it was developed into the feature film The Priests. As such, some of the short films selected for Jeonju are attempts to embrace both the industry and the genre.

However, it is a little disappointing that there are no distinctive new attempts being made through the shorts. Fortunately, this year’s select\ion reflects experimental films that are being actively discussed. We hope to see cinematic attempts that cross the borders of documentaries and animations as well as feature films and a stronger pursuit of aesthetics in short films.
