SHORTS IN KOREA
The Korea Times recently reported Actor Ahn Sung-ki, a veteran Korean actor believes short films are a pure way for directors to express what they want to say without worrying too much about commercial success. We agree with Sung-ki.
``Different from feature films, short films have their own attractive qualities, free from the burden of commercial success and all that,'' Ahn told The Korea Times last week. ``And they talk straightforwardly in innovative and interesting ways.''
To promote the virtues of short films, he is now working as director of the 3rd Asiana International Short Film Festival (AISFF), which takes place in Seoul from Nov. 2 to 7, showcasing 55 films from 26 countries.
