Film Director to Create 50 Bln Won Movie Fund

2006/09/25 | 152 views | Permalink | Source

The director said that the so-called "Kang Woo-suk Fund", will help quality small-scale movies reach a wider audience in various ways. He regretted that, although more than a hundred films are produced each year, many do not make it to the screen due to lack of support.

A five-member panel will oversee the fund, in collaboration with Shinbo Investment Corporation, and select films to receive support. The panel will include the head of the domestic production company Studio 2.0 Kim Seung-beom and film director Jang Yoon-hyun.
