The Finalists of the 20th GwangHwaMun International Short Film Festival unveiled

Dear MovieBloc Community,

The 20th GwangHwaMun International Short Film Festival (GISFF) has revealed the 41 finalists.

According to the festival committee, “To create a film festival the audience can engage in, the audience jury from six countries including Korea, Pakistan, and Germany, has selected 41 films in the second preliminary screening of the international competition section.”

The audience jury also commented; “We focused on the films that are short but intense enough to stand out to make the selection decision”. In particular, “Shorts that made new attempts in various genres stood out. Also, there were many shorts that narrated stories of ‘family’, ‘the life of modern people’ that anyone can relate to.”

For the final round, Pierce CONRAN (Journalist), KIM Doyoung (Director), Teresa KWONG (Film Producer), SOHN Sehoon (CEO of Zinfilm, a film production company), and Gerwin TAMSMA (Film Programmer) were appointed as the jury. The final winners will be announced on 2022 June 30, on the MovieBloc website(moviebloc.com).

The total prize money $60,000 will be granted to the three winners; △Gold Award ($30,000) △Silver Award ($20,000) △Bronze Award ($10,000). Additionally, the production support fund $20,000 per winner will be awarded.

The 20th GwangHwaMun International Short Film Festival is being screened all over the world through MovieBloc. Audiences can watch all films of the 20th GISFF, including 41 finalists, until 2022 June 30.

Thank you,
