KOFIC, Korea-China Interchange to Revitalize Two Industries

2008/11/12 Source

KOFIC (chairperson KANG Han-sup) is commencing two events in order to revitalize the film interchange between Korea and China.

First of the two events is '2008 Korea-China Business Campus' which will take place from Thursday, November 13 to Monday, November 17, over the course of 5 days. The event will mainly focus on the process of sharing films as well as co-production opportunities. This event first took place in 2006 in China, and then moved to Pusan International Film Festival in 2007 as a forum format, thus making this year's event second edition to be held in Korea. First annual event focused on the effect of Korean manpower and resources in Chinese film industry, while the current Business Campus will concentrate on not only the further advancements of above but how Korea and China can collaborate on projects that promote exchange of resources between the two countries. The event will hold pitching/mentoring sessions, seminars, business meetings for producers, production/post-production/special effects staff members as well as personnel from other technical fields looking for more participation from both countries. Genesis CEO JEONG Julian Tae-sung (former COO of Showbox/Mediaplex, Inc.) and Chungeorahm Film CEO Choi Yong-bae will be present as mentors. Through the event it would be possible to network and create ample opportunities to meet new partners on co-production projects.

Along with the Business Campus, '2008 Korea Film Festival' will be held in three major Chinese cities, which includes Beijing (Nov. 14-19), Shanghai (Nov. 16-21), and Kunnming (Nov. 25-28). 12 films will be presented at the festival including opening film "The Happy Life" by Lee Joon-ik. This festival will create a lavish opportunity to expand Korean film fan base.

KOFIC chairperson KANG Han-sup will attend official events to promote Business Campus and Film Festival as well as a KOFIC-sponsored soiree 'Night of Korea-China Interchange' on the night of Saturday, November 15. Further, the directors whose films are part of the film festival, including Lee Joon-ik, Lee Seong-gang, Song Hae-seong, and Jang Yoon-hyeon, will attend the event and promote Korean cinema to international audience.
