  • Launched in 2000, Jeonju International Film Festival is one of the biggest Asian film festivals and the most important supporter of experimental and adventurous projects in Korea. JIFF is often compared with Busan IFF. While Busan IFF pursues economies of scale and aims to become ‘Cannes’ in Asia, Jeonju sets its stance more of Locarno or Rotterdam IFF. While Busan IFF attracts its audience with ‘bling-bling’ tourists’ spots in Haeundae, Busan that about half its audience are tourists, Jeonju is a traditionally beautiful city like Firenze, Italy that JIFF allures hard-core, serious moviegoers with the quality of its films.

    The pursuit of JIFF, DISCOVERY of films, could be seen in its very beginning. In the first edition of JIFF, debut films of Darren ARONOFSKY, Fernando MEIRELLES, and Alejandro González IÑÁRRITU were introduced to Korea. For the first time in Asia, Jiff high-lighted early works of Béla TARR, Ulrich SEIDL, Laurent CANTET as well. The winners of Jeonju IFF’s International Competition Section include Matias PIÑEIRO, YING Liang, Denis CÔTÉ, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, SUWA Nobuhiro, John AKOMFRAH and MIIKE Takashi.

    Another interesting point of Jeonju is that it produces movies as well. Directors that once invited to Jeonju IFF, were later invited again to Jeonju Digital Project (JDP) which is a set of three digital shorts. JDP granted financial support to masters for their short films and world-premiered those pieces in Jeonju. The former directors ran JDP include ZHANG Yuan, JIA Zhang Ke, TSAI Ming Liang, SUWA Nobuhiro, Shinji AOYAMA, BONG Joon-Ho, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, Shinya TSUKAMOTO, Darezhan OMIRVAEV, Pedro COSTA, Mahamat-saleh HAROUN, HONG Sang-soo, Lav DIAZ, Denis CÔTÉ, Jean-Marie STRAUB, Claire DENIS, José Luis GUERIN, YING Liang, Edwin, ZHANG Lu, KOBAYASHI Masahiro. 

    Celebrating its 15th edition, JDP has boosted scale up to Feature-length with GYÖRGY Pálfi(Hungary), PARK Jung bum/SHIN Yeon-shick (Republic of Korea.) 
    One of the other notable characteristics of JIFF is its experimental section called Expanded Cinema (formerly called Stranger than Cinema.) Expanded Cinema is possibly the best experimental film section in Asia that world-premieres new project of directors such as Peter KUBELKA, Peter TSCHERKASSKY, Harun FAROCKI, Artavazd PELESHIAN, James BENNING, Alexander KLUGE, Pere PORTABEELA, Raya MARTIN, Romuald KARMAKAR, and Jon JOST.
