  • Three Korean Films Nominated at Asia Screen Pacific Awards
  • by Pierce Conran /  Nov 14, 2013
  • JUVENILE OFFENDER, THE FAKE and MASQUERADE Compete
     

    The Asia Screen Pacific Awards have announced their nominees for its 7th edition and among them, a trio of Korean films has been selected. 39 films from 21 countries were nominated in various categories.
     
    KANG Yi-kwan’s Juvenile Offender was nominated in the Best Children’s Feature Film category. Among other nominees was Wadjda, the first Saudi Arabian film directed by a woman, which served as the closing film of this year’s Jeonju International Film Festival.
     
    YEON Sang-ho’s The Fake was selected for the Best Animated Feature Film section. YEON’s dark animation has been getting a lot of attention since its bow as part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Vanguard section back in September. Among others, The Fake will go up against MIYAZAKI Hayao’s final feature The Wind Rises.
     
    LEE Byung-hun was nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor category for his dual-role in the hit period drama Masquerade. Directed by CHOO Chang-min, the film collected over 12 million admissions last fall.
     
    Last year, four films were nominated in various categories while CHOI Min-shik earned Best Actor for Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Time and CHO Min-soo picked up the Screen International Jury Grand Prize for Pieta. The 7th Asia Pacific Screen Awards will take place in Brisbane’s City Hall on December 12th.
