Held Offline after Three Years!
23rd Jeonju International Film Festival
JIFF(Jeonju International Film Festival) has an important role in being
the first international film festival to be held in Korea every year, starting in 2000.
Movie fans are looking for the festival, which marks its 23rd anniversary, as pre-COVID19 programs,
including the opening red carpet and conversations with directors and actors,
are scheduled to operate normally for three years.
JIFF's charm is that it introduces alternative trends in contemporary film art and
optimal independent and artistic films. 3,000 seats in Jeonju Dome, which will screen the opening film,
were sold out in about 3 minutes after the reservation began, and general screenings were also
sold out one after another.As it is held properly for the first time in a long time, the heated enthusiasm
of the audience who want to enjoy the film festival is seen for sure.
The festival, which marks its 23rd anniversary this year, will be held during the Golden Week in May.
Come on a trip to 'Jeonju', the city of JIFF, which has emerged as a central film festival for world/alternative/independent films.
JIFF Film Street Come to Life Again
The offline hosting of JIFF and the revival of Jeonju Dome make the JIFF street and square more lively as if it shows our society returning to normal life after social distancing. How long have we been wishing for, the taste of this film festival where visitors can watch movies screened in theaters and enjoy offline festivals face-to-face on JIFF street! In addition to JIFF street, you can enjoy the festival while watching movies in spaces with the unique mood of Jeonju, such as Dongmun Art Street, Sebyeong Park in Eco City, and Yeopsoon Park in Jeonju Innovation City.
Front of Jeonju Dome is filled with the heat of the festival due to people gathered to enjoy the offline film festival. While enjoying the festival by taking pictures and looking around JIFF street, you can find a place where a lot of people gathered; the busking zone where you can enjoy street performances! There is also a surprise event for those who enjoy the festival before the performance. Various performances such as bands, classical music, fusion jazz, and magic are being presented, so you can meet various street performances if you check the schedule and lineup carefully. JIFF provides not only movies but also various attractions as such.
100 Films 100 Posters Exhibition Hall
Enjoying JIFF only on the JIFF street is a waste! Let's meet '100 Films 100 Posters', a poster festival held at Palbok Art Factory during the festival. It is an exhibition of posters designed by 100 graphic designers for 100 films invited to the festival. Regardless of the rules and customs of the commercial poster, it focuses on newly defining the identity of the film by adding rich imagination. It is impressive that one designer designs posters simple and profoundly, while another designer designs posters humorously but intensely, expressing their personal appreciation and experiences honestly.
'100 Films 100 Posters' marked its 8th anniversary this year, showcasing a variety of works in collaboration with 100 movies and 100 graphic designers every year. Commentaries for each poster can be viewed through the exhibition pamphlet, and a brief introduction to the designer or the address of the personal website is also attached to enable continuous communication between visitors and artists.
