KIM Dong-yeon


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.

Greetings, this is Jung Sangjin, the Festival Director.

This year’s DMZ International Documentary Film Festival will be held for 8 days from September 22 to 29. And, DMZ Docs Industry, a platform for supporting documentary creators, will be open from September 20 to 25 ahead of the festival.

A total of 137 new documentary films will be introduced this year. We are proud to present the best works to lovers of the documentary genre. DMZ Docs Industry, a documentary creator support platform, will try to revitalize culture and art support programs that have become more difficult due to the pandemic.

The DMZ International Documentary Film Festival, which was held on a scaled down scale due to the corona virus for the past two years, will return to its former form this year. VoDA, an online OTT service for documentary films that was launched last year, will be used as an online theater this year.

We sincerely thank all the documentary filmmakers, Gyeonggi-do, Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Korean Film Council, Goyang city and Paju City for their help in hosting the DMZ International Documentary Film Festival. Above all, we would like to express my gratitude to the audience for visiting the DMZ International Documentary Film Festival every year.
