2010/04/02 | Permalink | Source

The International Women's Film Festival in Seoul kicks off its 12th edition April 8 with German drama The Day Will Come, directed by Susanne Schneider. Running for eight days at the Artreon Theater in Sinchon, west-central Seoul, the fest will screen 102 films from 27 countries under the banner "See the World Through Women's Eyes".

Main section New Currents presents 26 features representing the latest trends in women's films. Included are three by Korean female directors, KWON Woo-jung's documentary "Earth's Women", Park Chan-ok's award-winning second feature "Paju", and Kim So-young-I's experimental drama "Viewfinder".

Special highlight sections include Post-'98 Indonesian Women's Cinema, the newly-added Polemics section which this year focuses on 'Maternity in Question', a competitive Asian Short Film and Video section, and 13 new films in its annual Queer Rainbow section.

The festival will close April 15 with a screening of the winning short film. All films will be subtitled in English unless otherwise noted. The festival's website can be found at: Open the link
