[BBANGYA NEWS|Reporter Michelle Lee] The 23rd Korea’s Jeonju film festival will be held for 10 days from April 28 in Jeonju, North Jeolla Province.

Along with the two opening and closing titles, a total of 217 movies, up from the previous year's 186, will be screened in five theaters across Jeonju during the festival. Out of them, 112 films will be also available on JIFF's online platform.

Nine films were chosen for the Korean competition section, including "Mother and Daughter," "Archaeology of Love" and "Drown," and more than half of the invitees were helmed by female directors, said JIFF.

For this year's JIFF, director Yeon Sang-ho of "Train to Busan" (2016) will serve as a special programmer, while a screening program to present works of renowned director Lee Chang-dong will be also featured.

It took two years for the 23-year-old film festival to host the event on a normal scale, as its 21st edition took place entirely online after a month delay due to COVID-19, and the 22nd version was held in a hybrid format.
