Busan-born Korean-American director Kim So-yong's second feature "Treeless Mountain" will compete in this year's prestigious Tokyo FILMeX International Film Festival alongside 9 other carefully selected films. The 9th edition of FILMeX runs Nov. 22 30 and offers a cash award of 1,000,000 yen to the grand prize winner.

South Korean director Song Il-gon was invited to join the jury this year and will sit alongside Hong Kong actor Tony Leung Ka-Fai (Election); Teruyo Nogami, of Kurosawa Production Co.; French film critic Isabelle Regnier; and Leon Cakoff, a Brazilian film critic and director. SONG has directed several film festival favorites including "Flower Island" (2001), "Spider Forest" (2004), and "Feathers in the Wind" (2005).

KIM's "Treeless Mountain" was selected in the 2005 Pusan Promotion Plan, had its world premiere at the 2008 Toronto IFF, and screened recently in Pusan. It is KIM's first film to be shot entirely in Korea with a Korean cast. It tells the story of two young sisters shuffled about from their mother to an alcoholic aunt, and on to their grandmother. The film was also recipient of location and production support from the Seoul Film Commission.
