The Jeonju International Film Festival Embraces the World of Film

In a country whose film industry has rapidly – and firmly – established itself as one of the most dynamic in the world, it's no wonder that the Jeonju International Film Festival, which runs May 3 -12, is quickly finding an international – not just Asian – recognition. The festival takes place in the old town of Jeonju, one and a half hour fast-train ride south of the capital of Seoul, a much smaller town filled with traditional houses, restaurants, walkways, street food and young people often wearing the traditional Hanbok costume strolling its streets and parks.
