Also known as "A Time to Love"
Since 2007, Jeonju International Film Festival has promoted Korean short films planned with its Short! Short! Short! Project that supports short films of talented, young Korean directors. The Short! Short! Short! Project is produced by Indiestory Inc., and co-provided by KT&G Sangsangmadang, Jeonju International Film Festival, and Indiestory Inc. It is a new method of short film production project where three short films are produced in an omnibus type film and screened in theaters.
Through the "Short! Short! Short! 2009" - "Show Me The Money" and "Short! Short! Short! 2010" - "Fantastic Theater" the ―Short! Short! Short!‖ project selected talented young directors annually to produce short films and explore new possibilities for film production. This year, the project has selected directors Boo Ji-young and Yang Ik-june whose potentials have been recognized both in Korea and internationally through their debut works.
Director Boo Ji-young who filmed "Sisters on the Road" (2008) starring Gong Hyo-jin and Sin Min-ah, and director Yang Ik-joon of "Breathless" (2008) who swept away many awards in film festivals in Korea and internationally have joined together to create a project under the theme of ―love.‖ Unlike the previous year, the two directors will put together two short to mid length films to create one feature omnibus film for a new experimental film method. The ensemble of short films under the theme of ―love‖ by the directors who have already impressed with their distinct style to audiences will be a new challenge taken in the Short! Short! Short! Project.
In this year's Short! Short! Short! Project director Boo Ji-young will present "Moonwalk" (working title) which is a story of a middle aged woman who works at a mart while raising a high school daughter alone. Actor Seo Joo-hee, who is famous for the play The Vagina Monolgues will play the role of the middle aged woman who matures through a love that cannot come true. Director Boo's unique sensitive portrayal and directing abilities are anticipated. Director Yang's "Immaturity" (working title) is about a man with a broken heart who coincidentally meets a young innocent girl and begins a new love that heals him. Director Yang Ik-june cast actors Heo Joon-seok and Ryoo Hye-yeong as lead characters, and he shows through a rough and awkward love, an honest and serene story of youth maturing through love.
"Short! Short! Short! 2011" will be screened as a world premiere during the 12th JIFF and will also be released in theaters for general public after the festival.
