  • Moving theater, 90 seconds imagination is spread out!
    Seoul Metro International subway Film Festival (SMIFF), which is hosted by Seoul Metro, Seoul international Extreme-Short Image & Film Festival and Barcelona TMB, is the first international metro film festival in Asia. Under the slogan '90 seconds of imagination, Enjoy the subway!', SMIFF has been held in Seoul and Barcelona’s subway. SMIFF hopes to make subway a non-individual space although individuals are gathered, by creating a visual culture which could be enjoyed by all passengers. SMIFF believes in the power with the space and the movie.


    E-CUT for the Director
    'E-CUT for the Director' is the project to support a promising director to produce his own film. The project can be achieved by talent donations from famous actors, fresh ideas from short film directors, and support of a place from Seoul Metro. Subway itself is an attractive place containing daily lives that has already appeared in numerous films. Nevertheless, it is not easy to choose a subway as a filming location because there are many restrictions throughout the subway station. Thus, without the support of Seoul Metro, this project couldn’t have been completed. < Best Poem > of director Lim Junghoon, which has been produced by talent donations of actress Hwang Bora and actor Moon Yookang, was filmed at Dokbawi Station. This film comically plays out the episode which happens from a poem on the subway screen door. It gives us the opportunity to think about how to communicate and interact.
    International Competition
    This year, 25 films for International Competition, selected by Seoul Metro International Subway Film Festival, Subtravelling in Barcelona and 60 Seconds in Copenhagen will be screened on-line, at the cinemas, and on the subway monitors. They include a variety of film genres, which range from experimental films selected by 60 Seconds in Copenhagen to animations and fictions selected by Seoul Metro International subway Film Festival and Subtravelling in Barcelona together.

    Korean Competition
    Korean Competition is the section for the films set Seoul metro as their background. They will let you feel how grateful we are to the subway or how many various lives there are on the subway by looking into Seoul Metro.

    Special Competition of Subway Film
    Special Competition consists of some of the high quality films which haven’t been selected in the International Competition and Korean Competition because they fail to meet some essential standards for public screening using subway monitors such as screen size, subject or the amount of dialogue. The winner was decided following on-site vote at the cinemas until last year but this year the winner will be decided following an online vote like that of International Competition and Korean Competition.

    Special Screening: Subtravelling in Barcelona
    ‘Roda a TMB’, National Competition of Subtravelling, which is the short film festival held in Barcelona every November, is the section for the films based on Barcelona’s subway. This year, you can meet 6 of last year’s winners of ‘Roda a TMB’. By comparing Seoul Metro from Korean Competition and Barcelona's subway in this section, you can discover diverse aspects of life of two countries which seem similar yet different.
