To the Directors of the Chuncheon Film Festival International Competition

2021-08-19 04:12
Hello. I am Lee Ahn, the chairman of the Chuncheon Film Festival.

I would like to express our sincere thanks to all those who have sent valuable works to Chuncheon film festival, the only film festival in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do, Republic of Korea that celebrated its 8th anniversary this year.

Since last year, we have conducted domestic competitions focusing on independent SF films and children's and youth films, and this year we have expanded our doors to international competition.

The intense interest shown by more than 3,000 supported films from all over the world through this international competition is providing a strong support and support for the Chuncheon Film Festival can develop into the Chuncheon International SF Film Festival.

Since the Corona 19 hit the world last year, all film festivals have been trying to protect the film ecosystem by continuing the festival in various ways.

The Chuncheon Film Festival also conducted online and offline screenings at the same time, making every efforts to bring good cinemas to more audiences even in the midst of the corona pandemic.

This year, when the situation improves, we hope to invite directors of the international competition. However, since last June, as the second pandemic wave caused by the delta virus began to hit the world, it became difficult to invite directors who sent their works from abroad. The current situation in Korea is that there are more than 1,000 confirmed cases every day since June, so stronger quarantine guidelines are being implemented nationwide than ever before. In this situation, we've been looking for a way to invite the directors of our festival, but for everyone's safety. we decided to postpone the invitation of directors in the abroad after overcoming the corona situation.

We sincerely apologize for causing great disappointment to the directors who wanted to meet the Korean audience this time. We hope that the COVID-19 situation will improve as soon as possible, so to meet all the directors in person. For that day, all members of Chuncheon Film Festival will also work hard.

Best regards,

Operation director of 2021 Chuncheon Film Festival, Ian.
