The Korean omnibus film 'Fantastic Parasuicides' has been invited to the 2008 Sydney International Film Festival in Australia.

Producer and distributor Indiestory said it was unusual for festival organizers to invite a film prior to officially announcing the festival program.

The Fantastic Parasuicides, which was also invited to the Pusan International Film Festival's Wide Angle category, is an omnibus film which consists of three short films that come together under the common theme "suicide". The three short films include 'Three People in the Dark' directed by Park Soo-young-I, 'Fly Chicken!' directed by Jo Chang-ho and 'Happy Birthday' directed by Kim Seong-ho.

The annual Sydney International Film Festival is the largest film festival in the southern hemisphere that screens 300 films from 40 to 50 countries around the world. A number of Korean films have been invited in the past inlcuding 'Untold Scandal' and 'If You Were Me' in 2003, 'Host and Guest' in 2006 and 'Woman on the Beach' in 2007.

'Fantastic Parasuicides' will open in four theaters nationwide on November 8, including Mirospace in Gwanghwamun, Cinema Sangsangmadang and Gukdo Art Cinema in Busan.
