Screening Accompanied by a Case Study
 

The Korean Film Council (KOFIC, Chairman KIM Sae-hoon) affiliated Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA) will introduce the latest multi-projection theater system ‘Screen X’. The ‘Screen X’ film showcase scheduled for Thursday February 5th at the CGV Hongdae theater will be screening 3 films including KIM Jee-woon’s The X followed by a ‘Screen X’ film production case study presentation and related film production education orientation.

As a leading force in 3D film production education since 2012, KAFA has consistently offered opportunities for Korean film professionals to understand the process of 3D filmmaking and supported the students to make of their own short films using this knowledge. The dilemma of a new screening system for 3D films led to the production of ‘Screen X’ short Mother (direct translation) directed by HONG Sung-hoon which will have the opportunity for evaluation at the showcase.

‘Screen X’ is a new dynamic screening system which expands the front screen of a movie theater to the left and right sides of the theater’s physical structure. This type of multiple screen use is groundbreaking in the sense that it provides new storytelling possibilities for the creator while giving the audience a new visual experience. Just like its involvement in 3D film production, KAFA has been following and focusing on the ‘Screen X’ system as well. At the showcase, Korean films shot on ‘Screen X’ format will be screened including KIM Jee-woon’s The X starring GANG Dong-won and SHIN Min-a, the KAFA-produced short Mother, and Ghost Whale (direct translation) directed by CHOI Yang-hyun. After the screenings, additional programs such as a case study presented by the cinematographer of KIM Young-noh, and KAFA’s ‘Screen X’ film production orientation will follow.
