Korean Competition for Shorts

  • "The Korean short films are growing up quantitatively as well as qualitatively. This year, the entries at close to 900 films had been submitted in 'Korean Competition for Shorst', and the judges of its preliminaries commented that the general standard of short films improved conspicuously. The fiction films are given a great deal on this edition of Korean Competition for Shorts, and it is regrettable that the experimental film and documentary film were not much submitted to this section. However, as for the submitted fiction films, they are expected to appeal to the audience with interesting style and composition of the films, their contemporary subject matters and outstanding performance of the actors, though most of them deal with the themes similar to them of the previous editions, such as the employment, school life, love, family, etc.
    This year, Korean Competition for Shorts is dominated by the films by school students, the films about the employment and love of the major issues for the twenties, and the films dealing with family problems. We selected the controversial films which much could be said for and against, even if they could not make a great appeal to a great many people. And we evaluated them by their distinguished characteristics regardless of the degree of completion. They will communicate with the audience in a unique way in Jeonju International Film Festival."
