Jeonju is a great place to market your film for distribution in Asia and particularly in Korea. It's also great for looking for funding as they have a category for fiction and documentary pitching. However it is important to know Korean if you want to enjoy the festival fully! Gabriel Around 4 years ago

I traveled to JIFF as press. It's a small place, Jeonju, but that's really what makes it a great place to go. It's not the spectacle you'd find at Busan, but it feels more personal and accessible. Of the two, Jeonju may be smaller but it holds its own. Kevin Around 5 years ago
