Like last year, Korean Cinemascape selected new films by directors who have made 2 or more films and films by new directors that are well made or possess a strong theme although we could not include them all in the competition section.

Feature films by established directors include If You Were Me by SHIN Yeonshick, CHOE Equan, LEE Kwangkuk, a civil rights committee commissioned project that proves the excellent direction skills of established directors, Star Park’s Coffee shop by LEE Sangwoo which illustrates the warm love of people compared to the provocative trend in films, Woojoo’s Christmas by KIM Kyunghyung, which captures the incomprehensible coincidence in life, and films by new directors include Garak Market Revolution by JUNG Dawon with its witty dialog, The Artist: Reborn by KIM Kyoungwon about an artist with an unusual perspective, Home Sweet Home by LIM Daseul which deals with family issues in a focused way.
