Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Governor of Gyeonggi Province
Greetings, this is Kim Dong-yeon, Chairman of the Organizing Committee and Governor of Gyeonggi Province.
DMZ International Documentary Film Festival, which presented various documentary films from Korea and abroad, is now leaping beyond Korea to Asia and the world.
A total of 137 films will be presented to the audience this year. In a difficult situation due to COVID-19, where filmmakers are cut off from both film production and audiences, and residents cut off from their neighbors, we would like to be with you under the slogan “Connecting the world through documentary”.
To make it easier for the residents of Gyeonggi Province to participate, “Let’s DMZ-Docu Screening” will be held 13 times from July to October this year. In addition, through VoDA, the online theatre of the DMZ International Documentary Film Festival, documentary films are screened, and documentary-related education programs are provided, allowing you to enjoy culture and educational opportunities anytime, anywhere.
DMZ International Documentary Film Festival was able to grow thanks to the audience who love movies. Gyeonggi Province will make further efforts to develop independent art films, including documentaries to enhance the publicness and social role of documentary. Thank you.
