Director Bong Joon-ho was named the best filmmaker at the annual Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday.

He won the Hollywood Filmmaker Award for his latest film "Parasite", which received the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival in May.

The Hollywood awards are an American motion picture award ceremony held annually since 1997.

"Parasite" is doing well at the North American box office, earning over US$7.54 million as of Sunday, according to the U.S. movie ticket tracking website Box Office Mojo. It surpassed the earnings of Bong's previous film "Snowpiercer".

The number of theaters in North America screening "Parasite" has increased from three to 463.

All that has made the Korean film a stronger contender for an Oscar for the Best International Feature Film category. The Academy Awards will be held in February next year.


"Parasite" is directed by Bong Joon-ho, and features Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Jo Yeo-jung, Choi Wooshik, Park So-dam, Lee Jung-eun. Release date in Korea: 2019/05/30.
