  • A GIRL AT MY DOOR and HAEMOO Invited to Palm Springs IFF
  • by Pierce Conran /  Dec 29, 2014
  • First Major Fest Invites for Korean Films in 2015

    One of the earliest events on the film festival calendar, the Palm Springs International Film Festival will kick off its 26th edition on January 2nd. As with previous years, Korean cinema will be on the menu, with July JUNG’s A Girl at My Door and SHIM Sung-bo’s Haemoo bearing the flag for Korean films on the international stage in early 2015.
    Following its debut in the Un Certain Regard section of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the drama A Girl at My Door, starring BAE Doo-na and KIM Sae-ron, and produced by brothers LEE Chang-dong and LEE Joon-dong, has been invited to a number of international events, such as the Toronton and Busan International Film Festivals, also winning the award for Best First Film at the Stockholm International Film Festival. In addition, JUNG’s debut film secured distribution in a clutch of key markets, including France and the UK. A Girl at My Door will screen in the ‘World Cinema Now’ section.
    Also featuring a star director turned producer, this time Bong Joon Ho, Haemoo, the debut of Memories of Murder (2003) scribe SHIM Sung-bo, is another work that has invited around the world, to the Toronto, San Sebastian, Vancouver and Dubai International Film Festivals among others. The sea thriller starring KIM Yun-seok and k-pop star PARK Yoo-chun will be featured in the ‘Awards Buzz: Best Foreign Language Film’ lineup as it was chosen as Korea’s official representative to next year’s Academy Awards, though it failed to make the final shortlist.
