On November 8, starting with the opening ceremony in the Natural Science Building of the University of Seoul (UOS), the 20th Urban Film Festival was held for three days. During this festival, about 40 movies were shown at the Lotte Cinema near Cheongnyangni Station in Seoul.

The Urban Film Festival, which is held annually, was founded by professors from the Department of Urban Sociology in 1988 and started with the purpose of educating students about various phenomenon thorough videos and growing their ability to solve urban problems.

This year’s 20th Urban Film Festival was divided into an invitation sector and a student contest sector. The invitation sector showed movies from contemporary directors and was also divided into three sections: “Remind 2017”, “Bless the Sunrise”, and “Enjoy Your Life”. The student contest sector showed movies made by university students, and these movies competed to win a grand prize.

This year, “BE U” was the main theme of the festival. This stands for “Independence at the city”, while “U” meaning both “you” and “urban”. Unlike last year, a dramatic movie, which is usually more popular than a documentary film, was added to the festival. The opening film was “Summer Night” by director Lee Ji-hoon, and it has won prizes at many other film festivals. For the closing film of the festival, the grand prize from the student contest sector was introduced. In addition to just showing movies, many other colorful programs were scheduled at this festival. For example, a Guest Visit, which is a program that conducts a Q&A with movie directors and staff, was arranged for movie fans.

Kim Min-jae (Dept. of Urban Sociology, ’13), who worked for this festival, said, “This year, a lot of audience members came to see this festival and enjoyed it. So, I was very pleased to meet and talk with a lot of the visitors. It was a worthwhile time. I hope that a lot of people visit the Urban Film Festival next year, too.”
