"Secret Sunshine" Contender at 1st Asia Pacific Screen Awards

2007/10/03 | 377 views | Permalink | Source

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards nominated Lee Chang-dong's "Secret Sunshine" three times; the film competes for the awards: Best Feature Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Actress (Jeon Do-yeon). Promising actor Ryu Deok-hwan is nominated for the Best Actor award for his role in "Like A Virgin".

"Secret Sunshine" distinguished itself at this year's Cannes International Film Festival and it culminated in the Best Actress award for JEON. RYOO already collected a number of Best New Actor awards for his performance in "Like A Virgin". He was part of this year's Jang Jin film "My Son" alongside Cha Seung-won.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards' goal is to celebrate cinematic diversity and to highlight cinema from the Asia-Pacific region. The inauguration of the award show will take place on November 13, will be held at Australia's Gold Coast, and is initiated by the Queensland government with the support of CNN International, UNESCO, and International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF).
