Freshman Seminar

Digital Film Festivals in Korea

Spring 2006

Syllabus and Course Information


The number of art cinema houses in Korea is abysmally small.  Instead various film festivals in Korea cover a wide spectrum of genres and fill in for the lack of art cinema houses, especially outside the metropolitan Seoul area.  Also digital film festivals like SeNef take full advantage of Korea’s high-speed network infrastructure.  In this course, we review the history and key characteristics of Pusan International Film Festival and digital films SeNef in no-competition category.
