"Parasite" has been invited to the Perlak section of the San Sebastian Film Festival. It will compete with seven other international films for the San Sebastian Audience Award among others in the Spanish film festival, which will run from September 20th to September 28th.
The San Sebastian Film Festival has long been a supporter of director Bong Joon-ho's career. He was awarded best director and best new director for "Memories of Murder" back in the festival's 2003 edition. The news follows "Parasite" winning four awards at the Choonsa Film Festival, which is not actually a film festival, but rather an awards ceremony voted on by South Korean directors.
Next stop for Bong Joon-ho and his lead actor Song Kang-ho is Switzerland, where "Parasite" will screen as part of the Locarno International Film Festival in August. "Parasite" is also expected to appear at the Lumiere Film Festival in France come October.
