PIFF announces supported projects

2008/08/13 Source

The Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) disclosed the selected projects to receive support from the 2008 Asian Cinema Fund (ACF). The fund consists of three categories, namely: Development, Post-production, and documentary. PIFF selected 27 film projects from Korea and other Asian countries.

This year's ACF boasts "strengthened and widened ACF programs", according to PIFF. The selectees distinguished themselves by thorough preparation and a high potential for becoming a high quality film "with new and unique perspectives".

Among the finalists are projects by Kim Jong-kwan and Noh Kyeong-tae. KIM made his name with short films which have been invited by festivals around the world. KIM's current project is titled "Seaside". Noh Kyeong-tae crafted the highly original "The Last Dining Table" (Majimak Babsang) which also screened at several international film festivals. Noh Kyeong-tae is working on "Scarecrows".

The 2008 ACF Asian Network of Documentary (AND) includes the Korean documentary "Resilience" by the Korean adoptee filmmaker Tammy Chu Tolle. The documentary is produced by Koroot, an organisation supporting returning international adoptees. The documentary interviews birthmothers whose children were internationally adopted. The preliminary screenings offered a shocking inside in practices of international adoption agencies such as HOLT.

The 13th Pusan International Film Festival will take place from October 2 until October 10, 2008.
