[I'm bouncing this back to the top of the page purely because my set just arrived and it is gorgeous.]
A beautiful-looking boxset put out by the Jeonju International Film Festival showcases the work of filmmakers from Asia, Africa and Europe, and includes both the long-awaited English-subtitled version of Song Il-gon's Magicians as well as Shinya Tsukamoto's Haze and Bong Joon-ho's Influenza. This from Tom Giammarco's Seen in Jeonju:
Every year since the first Jeonju International Film Festival back in 2000, JIFF selects three filmmakers who are given 50 million KRW to create a thirty-minute digital movie. No restrictions are given to the topic or type of film to be made and many of the results have been outstanding. Now, gathered together for the first time, these 27 films from 2000-2008 have been made available in a 915 minutes, 9-disk set.
The DVD will be sold at the JIFF website beginning June 15.
