The Korean film "Ice Bar" directed by Yeo In-kwang has been invited to the 57th Berlin International Film Festival which will be held from Feb. 8-18 in Germany, according to MK Pictures, the local film production company.

Yeo's directorial debut film will be shown in the Generation section of the festival, dedicated to children's films. The section's competitions are known as Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus.

The section has been newly created this year by combining the "Kinderfilmfest", or the German Child Support Organization operating since 1978, and the Generation 14plus inaugurated in 2004.

The film will compete in Generation Kplus Competition, whose winners are selected by an 11-member children's jury.

Yeo's film revolves around a ten-year Old Boy living alone with his mother in the countryside who one day decides to look for his father living in Seoul.

Also, a Korean gay film, "No Regret" directed by Lee Song-hee-il, has been invited to the Panorama section of the festival.

The film has attracted an audience of about 40,000, which is an exceptional success here for an independent, low-budget film.

The film depicts a love story between homosexuals through romantic and erotic scenes.

At the festival, a total of six Korean films, including "I am a Cyborg, But That's Ok" directed by Park Chan-wook, will be presented in the competition section.
