Puchon Int"l Film Festival to Open July 16-24

The third Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival 'PiFan 99', will be held from July 16 to 24 in Puchon, Kyonggi Province.
About 100 films from 29 countries are invited to the festival on the theme of 'love, fantasy and adventure'.
PiFan 99 features films in five categories - a competition 'Puchon Choice', 'Fantastic World Cinema', 'Fantastic Short Films', 'Korean Cinema Showcase' and the newly-established 'New Zealand Fantastic Retrospective' .
Ten movies, including 'Between Your Legs' directed by Manuel Gomez Pereira from Spain and an American director Brian Yuzna's 'Progeny', will compete for 'Puchon Choice'.
Visitors can enjoy the aesthetics of five movies from the 'rising powerful state of film', such as director Vincent Wardin's 'Navigator' and James Bartle's 'Quiet Earth', in the 'New Zealand Fantastic Retrospective.'
Rick Yune, a Korean-American model selected as 'new face of the year' by Newsweek last January, takes part in the festival as a judge.
