From the 9-20th of November, the Stockholm International Film Festival (SIFF) will showcase over 170 films from 44 different countries.
According to the official press release, festival director Git Scheynius claimed the 22nd edition of the event,
“is the meeting point for next generation’s film creators. Our 22nd program is fully loaded with strong titles and fresh newcomers and this year we are happy to present more female directors than ever.”
As part of the ‘Asian Images’ category, 4 films will represent the Korean industry. Kim Ki Duk‘s Arirang (아리랑), which won the ‘Un Certain Regard’ at Cannes earlier this year, will be screened alongside Dance Town (댄스 타운), The Day He Arrives (북촌 방향), and The Yellow Sea (황해). All 4 of these films have been touring the international festival circuit this year, and are being well received by audiences and critics alike.
