Finecut fronts phone film
First came the Apple hype. Then came the prestigious festival selection. Now it is time for business.
Top South Korean sales agent Finecut is to handle international rights to Night Fishing, the film that was recently shot on an iPhone 4 by Oldboy director Park Chan-wook and his brother Park Chan-kyong.
The film is distributed in a limited number of Korean cinemas from today by Innocean Worldwide, Hyundai Motor’s in-house creative agency.
Several short films have been made using camera phones and Korea even held an iPhone 4 film festival in October, but Night Fishing is the first to receive a theatrical release in the country.
