Korean Film Council Cancels Film Festival

The move has led to questions in the South Korean media and film industry as Korean movies are also missing from the festival lineup amid strained ties between Seoul and Beijing over a U.S. missile defense system.

KOFIC, a state-backed organization for promoting Korean films overseas, has opened a promotional booth during the market period every single year since the festival’s second edition in 2012. Until last year, some 20 Korean companies participated in the KOFIC booth, providing information about the local postproduction technology, which had been in high demand in China.
