The works selected through the preliminary screening will be shown at the film festival held at KT&G's Sangsangmadang Cinema from November 15 to 20. A total of 15 million won in prize money and trophies will be awarded to the winners of two outstanding works selected through audience evaluation and screening by professional committee members.
Ji Hyo-seok, the head of KT&G's Cultural Contribution Department, said, "The Amazing Short Film Festival has contributed to the expansion of the base of Korea's independent films and has established itself as a gateway for new film directors and actors."
Meanwhile, KT&G's Sangsangmadang has supported the creative activities of new artists and provided a wide range of cultural experiences for the public.
