Artistic Director Michael Lerman Highlights The Best From Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival

I just got back from Korea where the longstanding Puchon International Fantastic Festival is serving up some of the greatest new genre titles from around the world. Among the big events here, there were packed houses for films from Asia like Doomsday Book, an anthology featuring top Korea directors like PFF alum Kim Ji-Woon who made A Tale of Two Sisters and The Good, The Bad and the Weird. Also featured was a great world program with American favorites opening here this summer like Sound of My Voice and Safety Not Guaranteed. I spent some quality time combing through the program for great new work I could bring to Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, across town, the leading minds in distribution were gathering for the Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF), a genre film market. The market included projects from all over Asia and couple from America. I took some meetings there as well to keep up on films that you might see in the festival in 2013 and 2014. Always looking ahead.

But, for now, countdown to October 18th. We’re in the last weeks of programming, so get excited!
