Of the nine, three films have been invited to the competition section: “Night Fishing,” “Love, or Not,” and “Broken Night.”
“Night Fishing,” co-directed by Park and his media artist brother Chan-kyong, tells the story of a middle-age man (Oh Gwang-rok), who accidentally catches the body of a female shaman (Lee Jung-hyun) while fishing at night.
The film has been in the spotlight for having been shot entirely using Apple’s iPhone 4.
Directed by Lee Yoon-ki, “Love, or Not” tells the story of a young couple who have been married five years facing a split.
“Broken Night,” a short film directed by Yang Hyo-joo, last year won the Sunje Fund Award at Pusan International Film Festival. It tells the story of a young man who constantly fakes car accidents to recieve insurance money.
In the non-competition section, Director Park Gyeong-guen’s documentary, “Cheonggyecheon Medley,” Kim Seon’s “Self-Referential Traverse,” and director Kim Tae-yong’s “Late Autumn” have been invited.
The film festival opens on Feb. 10.
