ME AND ME and More to Screen at Top North American Genre Film Event
The Fantasia International Film Festival will be returning for its 24th edition on August 20, but this year’s event will be an unusual one as it will take place exclusively online, owing to continued global concerns over the spread of the 2019-nCoV virus. The festival recently revealed its second wave of titles, which included a quintet of recent works from Korea.
Having its North American premiere in Montreal will be the mystery-thriller ME AND ME starring CHO Jin-woong (Believer, 2018). The directing debut of veteran star JUNG Ji-young (King And The Clown, 2005) has gained strong reviews in Korea, where it opened in June, and follows the case of a teacher and his wife who disappear one night from their countryside home and the strange things that happen to the detective assigned to the case.
Fantasia, which generally features over a dozen Korean titles, will reveal the rest of its lineup in early August. After kicking off on August 20, this year’s online-only event will run until September 2.
