Ciné-Asie presents Fantasia's 2nd annual Korean Film Spotlight

Congratulations to the Korean Film Spotlight of Fantasia 2011. We have witnessed Korean films gained more popularity and recognition for its unique story lines, wonderful cinematography and excellent stories in recent years around the world. I wish the Korean Film Spotlight to become an important event supporting the diversification and
development of the Fantasia Film Festival. I extend my warm congratulations to Ciné-Asie for arranging this meaningful event. Bon Cinéma!

It brings me great pleasure to bid you welcome to the fifteenth edition of the Fantasia Film Festival. I would like to highlight, once again, the precious collaboration with the Ciné-Asie Film Organization. Ciné-Asie has permitted Fantasia to present a selection of the best Korean films of the year, since 1998. We thus hope to be able to count on your presence to come to note the constant progression of national cinematography, which does not cease to surprise by its level of knowledge of exceptionality. The Korean films have been, for a long time, the most appreciated films of Fantasia. Come and discover why this edition of the Fantasia cinematic voyage promises to take you away into the unimaginable.
Bon cinéma!
