Seoul’s biggest indie film fest downsized
The Seoul Independent Film Festival (SIFF), which ends Dec. 17, is the largest and the oldest of about 10 independent film festivals in South Korea.
But for the first time in many years, the festival has had to scale down.
The cutback came because the festival failed to get funding from the government—the result of policy changes in August that meant reduced financial support for independent filmmakers.
Kam Jin-qu, a member of the organizing committee, sat down with Scene to discuss the festival.
