North America's largest genre film fest, the Fantasia International Film Festival boasts an impressive line-up of notable Korean films this year; among them the North American premiere of Park Chan-wook's Cannes-winning vampire drama, "Thirst". Held annually in Montreal, Canada, the event will run from July 9 29 at several theaters in the city.

Along with PARK's latest is "Crush and Blush", a film he produced for debut director Lee Kyoung-mi. Two int'l festival favorites, Noh Young-seok's micro-budget but acclaimed debut, "Daytime Drinking", and Jang Hoon's "Rough Cut" will screen. Both films have had their Canadian rights bought by Canada's Evokative Films which plans to release "Rough Cut" in Canadian theaters in January of 2010.

Rotterdam winner "Breathless" by Yang Ik-joon will screen along with sleeper hit of 2008, "The Chaser" by Na Hong-jin. Lee Yoon-ki's Seoul odyssey, "My Dear Enemy" and kwak Jae-Yong's Japanese made "Cyborg, She", were also invited. Other films in the program include the more commercially made Korean films "Private Eye", "The Divine Weapon", "Portrait of a Beauty", and "Go Go 70s".
