Korean Film to Open the Resurrected Yubari Film Festival

2008/02/08 | 224 views | Permalink | Source

Korean film "Cyborg She", directed by esteemed kwak Jae-Yong, is opening the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival to be held from March 19th through 23rd.

Once applauded as the model of successful small film festivals, Yubari Film Festival was suspended after 17 years in 2006 because of financial difficulties. Supported by filmmakers, fans, and citizens, however, the festival was resurrected this year with a severely cut 40-million yen budget.

Director kwak Jae-Yong has special ties to the Yubari Film Festival. He won the grand prize in the festival's Young Fantastic category with "My Sassy Girlfriend" starring Jun Ji-hyun in 2002. In the following year the festival invited him as a judge for the Young Fantastic category and also another one of his work "The Classic" with Jo In-sung and Son Ye-jin. "Cyborg She" is to be released this summer in Korea.
