Pyongyang film festival

Pyongyang, September 15 (KCNA) — “The 6th Pyongyang film festival of non-aligned and other developing countries” will be held in the DPRK from Sep. 16 to 25.

It is expected that some 50 organizations of 29 countries will present over 60 films to the festival.
The film festival is organized by non-aligned and other developing countries under the slogan “for independence, peace and friendship”. Since Juche 76 (1987) it has been held every two or three years.
Feature films and documentary films presented will be screened in the form of contest and information.
“Torch Prizes” (gold, silver and bronze ) and prizes for best shooting and acting will be awarded to excellent films, actors and actresses.
The festival serves as a good occasion in exchanging experience and successes among famous figures, writers, producers, shooters, actors and actresses in world film circles and developing cooperation and interchange.
Several Korean films were highly appreciated in the past festivals. Among them are feature films “the Nation and Destiny” and “a Bellflower,” a juvenile film “a Boy defeats robbers” and a documentary film “Four Seasons of Korea.”
“My image in the distant future,” a film based on the socialist reality, will be presented to this festival.
