Director Lee Won-tae's “The Devil’s Deal” has been invited to the 2021 Fantasia International Film Festival, based in Montreal, Canada. This year’s festival will be held from Aug. 5 to 25 both offline and online.

“Leading a fabulous cast, actor Cho Jin-woong delivers one of the best performances of his career,” said Nicolas Archambault, head of Asian programming at the film festival, on the official website. “With its immersive score, captivating plot and clever twists, ‘The Devil’s Deal’ is a must-see.”
