Moscow will host an inter-Korean film festival next month to mark the 60th anniversary of Korean liberation from Japanese rule.

The Gyeoreh Ilbo, a daily published by ethnic Koreans in Russia, said Wednesday that the festival will run from December 19th to the 21st.

On the schedule are the North Korean films "Girl Selling Flowers", "Empress Chung" and "Hong Kil-dong".

"Hong Kil-dong" is based on a famous 17-century novel about a farmer who fights government corruption and helps the poor. "Empress Chung" is an animated inter-Korean production about a traditional Korean folktale.

South Korean films at the festival will include the action-fantasy film "Heaven's Soldiers" and "Fighter in the Wind", the true story of Korean-Japanese Choi Bae-dal, who founded Kyokushin karate school as Matsutatsu Oyama.

During the festival period, the organizer will also show videos of Goryeo Dynasty relics and hold events on Korean liberation.

An invitation to the festival has been sent to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
