  • Launched in 2005, Jecheon International Music & Film Festival (JIMFF) strives to be both a celebration of film set in the beautiful landscapes of Jecheon City and exhilarating music shared and enjoyed by everyone of all generations and musical tastes.

    The cozy and scenic host city, Jecheon, is located in Chungcheongbuk province in central Korea. Jecheon is most famous for Cheongpung-ho, a lake that captivates tourists with natural beauty that is reminiscent of traditional Korean landscape paintings. "World Music Film Today", JIMFF's sole competition section, will present films from around the world this year. The jury will award an outstanding film with the Grand Prize among the most contemporary selections related to music regardless of genre.

    Other sections will introduce the various aspects of music cinema and a number of musical performances staged outdoors on the shores of Cheongpung Lake. The Jecheon Film Music Award honors film musicians who have had significant influence on Korean film and music culture and the Jecheon Film Music Academy is a program designed for specialized education about film music.

    Special Program

    Jecheon Music Film Project Promotion 2019
    ‘Jecheon Music Film Project Promotion (JPP)’ was first designed with the goal of contributing to the mainstreaming of Korean music films and unearthing and supporting music filmmakers. From 2008 to 2011, it supported the production of a total of six projects and was resumed in 2017 after a temporary interruption. Two projects selected last year, Shinning Ground and Viva la Vida, will be screened at the upcoming 15th JIMFF. In addition to this, we seek to take a leap forward with it by introducing a pitching & judging system and more awards. During ‘Jechoen Music Film Project Promotion 2019’ pitching event, four projects will be presented and the winners will receive a total of 350 million KRW in development grants and each category prize worth 5 million KRW. The results will be announced at the awards ceremony. By laying the groundwork for change this year, we seek to grow the scale of the project, including budget expansion, and to find ways to support the growth of Korean music films.
