The 10th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival will open on July 13th in the western Seoul suburb of Bucheon.

The festival's organizing committee in a news conference Tuesday said it will screen 251 films from 35 countries during the week-long event.

This year's curtain raiser is South Korean director Jeon Gye-soo's "The Ghost Theater". Edmond Pang Ho Cheung of Hong Kong will end the festival with his film "Isabella".

Organizing committee chairman Lee Jang-ho said the festival, also called PiFan 2006, will feature less horror movies and more stories of romance and adventure.

Part of the festival's proceeds will go to the charity group Beautiful Foundation.

A special exhibition in collaboration with New Zealand director Peter Jackson will show the production and technology behind his "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and remake of "King Kong", and the recent blockbuster "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".
