  • CJ E&M Hosts the 2nd ‘Chinese Korean Share Your Dream Short Film Festival’
  • by Kobiz reporter /  Sep 15, 2015
  • Korean Filmmaker KANG Je-kyu Joins the Event as a Competition Jury Member

    CJ E&M, Korea’s leading entertainment conglomerate, will host the second edition of its annual ‘Chinese Korean Share Your Dream Short Film Festival.’ The entertainment giant launched the festival last year in Beijing, hoping to help establish a stable filmmaking ecosystem in China and to discover and nurture aspiring new filmmakers from the two countries.

    Co-hosted and sponsored by a bunch of culture-related organizations in Korea and China, the 2nd Chinese Korean Share Your Dream Short Film Festival will take place in the Beijing branch of CJ CGV between 17—19 September.
    Submissions were open to any Korea or China-based young filmmakers between the ages of 15 and 29. Over two months’ period, a total of 572 submissions were received, jumping almost 20% from last year. Primary jury members chose 42 short films for competition.
    Main competition jury members include: KANG Je-kyu, who is famous in both countries mostly for his war blockbusters Swiri, TaeGukGi: Brotherhood Of War and My Way; and HUANG Jianxin, a well-known Chinese director of the so-called “5th generation.”
    The festival picked up KANG’s short film Awating as its opeing screener. A slew of youth short films will be screened along with films made through ‘Project S,’ CJ Cultural Foundation’s supporting program for up-and-coming directors.
    Popular in both countries, Korean star actor SONG Seung-heon (Wonderful Nightmare) and China’s versatile actress JIANG Yi Yan (One Night Stud) have joined the event as honorary ambassadors.
    "We will keep establishing networks for cultural exchanges and co-operation, so that this festival can function as a platform for young filmmakers from Korea and China to acquire global competitiveness that will help them go beyond Asia and make a foray to the world," said MIN Hee-kyung from CJ's CSV office in a statement.
