22nd Jeonju International Film Festival – Korean Competition for Shorts and Local Cinema 2021

This week the organizers of the Jeonju International Film Festival announced the Korean Competition for Shorts and Local Cinema programme. The festival will run from April 29th until May 8th, in Jeonju, South Korea.

This year 993 entries were submitted to the Korean Competition that took place from December 1st until February 1st, 2021. Among them, 25 were shortlisted. The preliminary screening was conducted by director Kim Mijo, winner of the 21st JeonjuIFF’s Korean Competition, director Shin Dongmin, also winner of last year’s Korean Competition, the Cine21 journalist Lee Dahyeh, webzine Reverse Journalist Cha Hanbi, film journalist Lee Eunseon, and film critic Huh Namwoong.

As for the Local Cinema section, composed of filmmakers from North Jeolla Province, 28 productions were submitted. The decrease of submissions from last year (that were 47 films) can be explained to the great impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the cinema industry.
