For the Korean competition section, 939 films, the biggest number ever, were submitted and 13 of them were finally selected for screening.
This year, films about the hardship of youngsters, who are so-called the generation of abandonment, are seemingly common. Although several films are a bit too provocative, there are also films handling social issues that arouse sympathy.
In the Korean competition section, there are short films of various genres dealing with demolition of rural area, senior problems, individualism and other social issues evoking sympathy.
