The Korean Film Council (KOFIC) successfully held its 2nd Cinema Development Performance Presentation Conference.
The event, which took place on December 1 at the Seoul Business Agency (SBA) Content Hall in Seoul’s Mapo district, was created to promote and disseminate the latest advances in Korean film technology.
LEE Joon-dong, acting chairman of KOFIC, announced the results of several KOFIC supported projects to the approximately 100 industry professionals in attendance. Technological advancements that were presented include DMLITE’s ‘LUMOS Glow Panel 400C’ as well as a new high-quality anamorphic lens created by Samyang Optics that comes at a price that is lower than similar products offered by foreign competitors.
The conference also featured events that allowed attendees to experience the latest advances in entertainment technology, including VR movies and a VR simulator that allowed spectators to ‘experience’ the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.
“We hope to contribute to the advancement of film technology development by presenting various achievements in the technology required for film production and post-production,” said LEE Kwang-jin, director of the Technology Support Division of KOFIC adding, “I am glad that this has become a place to share and communicate the value of film technology development with the general public.”
