  • NOODLE FISH Wins Animation Award at Warsaw
    KIM Jin-man’s short animation Noodle Fish won the Best Animated Short award at the 28th Warsaw Film Festival. This 10-minute-long animation about a fish, which was made using noodles, received the Best Animated Short award in the ’Short Films Competition’ section at the awards presentation of the festival held on October 20th (CET).
    At the Warsaw Film Festival held in Poland's capital from October 12th th 21st, about 100 films including shorts, feature films, documentaries and animations from all over the world were featured. Noodle Fish received positive notices for its innovative use of noodles and strong story.

Other films invited to diverse sections of the festival included: Bugok Hawaii: Illusionary Paradise directed by HA Gang-hun in the ’Competition 1-2’; Padak directed by LEE Dae-hee in the ‘Free Spirit Competition’; and Paradise directed by KIM Gyeong-jin and JEONG Min-yeong in the ‘Short Films Competition’, but none of them were awarded.
