Internationally acclaimed director Hong Sang-soo will partake in Jeonju International Film Festival's (JIFF) annual program Digital short films by three filmmakers. HONG finished filming his digital short film on November 12 and he is in the post-production stage, according to JIFF.

HONG's short film is titled Cheobcheobsanjoong (English translation: "deep in the mountains") and stars Lee Seon-gyoon ("A Cruel Attendance"), Moon Seong-geun ("A Petal"), and Jeong Yu-mi ("The Room Nearby"). HONG worked with MOON on "Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors" and "Woman on the Beach"; collaborated with LEE on "Night and Day"; and JUNG is part of HONG's upcoming Jal Aljido Mothamyeonseo (English translation: "when you don't know").

JIFF's Digital short films by three filmmakers selects every year three renowned directors who each receive US$ 50,000 for directing their short film. JIFF expressed their joy over HONG's participation in JIFF's omnibus project, and they hope it will increase the exposure of Korean cinema worldwide.

The 10th Jeonju International Film Festival will commence in 2009 on April 30 and wrap up on May 8.
