Launched in 2000 as a non-competitive film festival that adopts partial competition, the Jeonju International Film Festival (Jeonju IFF) introduced independent and experimental films at the forefront to shine a spotlight on the alternative movements of contemporary film art. Jeonju IFF discovers talents of promising filmmakers who could be the future leaders of filmmaking, endorse creative experiments and independent spirits, and provides the opportunity to meet and bond with international filmmakers.
Jeonju Cinema Project (JCP), a feature film financing & production program, has gained ground as Jeonju IFF’s independent brand that encompasses flim industry‘s fields such as investment, production and distribution. Furthermore, Jeonju Project Market’s development support for superb Korean feature films and documentaries, the business of distributing independent film contents and the Jeonju Cine Complex represent Jeonju IFF’s vision to create a constant and new added value beyond the film festival.
International Competition is an official competition section, devoted to rising directors from around the world. With a slogan “Cinema, Liberated and Expressed”, Jeonju will step up to rediscover new talents together with the audiences, expanding the boundary of cinema through unlimited and new forms of expression and imagination.
International Competition accepts any form of feature films including fictions, animations, documentaries and experimental films. Entries must have a minimum pre-condition of Asian Premiere, which means the film has not been presented in any Asian countries and won’t be before the festival is held. Moreover, the film must be the first or the second feature of the director.
