Two films to share KOFIC co-production support

2006/08/14 Source

Upcoming films by Bae Hyeong-joon "Once Upon a Time in Seoul", and Jeon Soo-il ("Le regard des ombres") will each receive 200 million won ($210,000) in financing as part of KOFIC's 2006 Production Support Program for International Co-productions.

BAE's film from MK Pictures is a co-production with Japan, while JEON's film from Dongnyuk Films is being co-produced with France.

This is the third year that KOFIC has held its support fund for international co-productions, which is intended to increase cross-border co-operation and exchange while also diversifying the output of Korean cinema. Last year's selection was Korean-Japanese co-production "Don't Look Back" by Kim Young-nam, which screened as the opening film of the 2006 Jeonju International Film Festival, and was also selected to screen in competition at the Locarno Film Festival. In 2004, Hong Sang-soo's Cannes entry "Tale of Cinema", co-financed by France's MK2, was selected.

A total of five projects applied to the support program, and the winning project was selected by a committee of local filmmakers and producers headed by PIFF programmer Jay JEON.
