Actress Kim Hye-soo speaks at a press conference for the 6th Asiana International Short Film Festival last Tuesday.
A press conference for the 6th Asiana International Short Film Festival was held last Tuesday morning at the Kumho Art Hall in Gwanghwamun, downtown Seoul. Present were actor and festival director Ahn Sung-ki, film director Yoon Jong-chan, festival programmer Lee J oo-yeon, actress Kim Hye-soo and actor Jeong Bo-hoon.

A total of 1,734 films from 69 countries have been submitted to this year's event. "Although more films were submitted this year than last, we had to reduce the number to be screened during the festival due to time restraints", said Lee Joo-yeon.

Kim Hye-soo, one of Korea's top actresses, was notably appointed as a special member of the jury. Kim has appeared in some 20 movies since her 1986 debut with "Ggambo" to her most recent release, this year's "Modern Boy".

"I graduated from university one year later than my fellow students, mainly due to the fact that I was working in the film industry while I was attending classes. Another reason is that I wasn't the most conscientious student. The only thing I loved as a film major student was to watch films. As a huge fan of short films, I will do my best to discover actors with great potential through watching many good short films", said Kim.

One of the noteworthy aspects of the festival is its showcase of films selected for in-flight entertainment schedules. In order to seek alternative ways to distribute films, each year the organizing committee chooses about ten films in competition to screen during Asiana's international flights until June of the following year.

The 6th Asiana International Short Film Festival will be held from Nov. 5 through 10 in Cinecube in Gwanghwamun, Seoul. For further information, refer to the festival's website, Open the link
