The Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival Secretariat said on the 10th that it has obtained public screening licenses for nine North Korean films, which will be unveiled at the 22nd Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival "Special Release of Korean Movies" on the 12th. This will also be the first time a Korean film has been released in Korea.

The Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival Secretariat said: "Considering the increasingly peaceful atmosphere of the Korean Peninsula, the Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival has drawn up a special screening program for North Korean films, which has recently been approved by the government for public screening."

News reported that due to the current regulations in Korea, North Korean movies or videos were classified as "special materials," and screenings were severely restricted. Even if the release is allowed, the audience will have to undergo a rigorous screening. This public screening of Korean films is the first time in Korea.

The Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival was approved by the Korean Ministry of Unification and sent a license to the Korean National Settlement Council. It is reported that the nine North Korean films to be screened are three feature films and six short films produced in North Korea in the 1980s, including the 15th Pyongyang International Film Festival's highest honor "Torch Award" winning work "The Story of Our Family". The Korean romantic comedy movie "Gold Comrades Fly Up" and the Korean anime "Good Adherence to Traffic Order". 

North Korean anime "to obey the traffic order."

Among them, "Golden Comrades Fly Up" was jointly produced by North Korea, the United Kingdom and Belgium. It was filmed in the North Korean capital Pyongyang. It tells the story of 28-year-old female miner Kim Yong-mei who overcomes difficulties and finally realizes his dream and becomes a high-altitude performer. This film was first screened overseas at the International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada in 2012, and then landed at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea.

The Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival lasts for 10 days. It is reported that the audience can also participate in two related forums of the film festival and discuss with experts on Korean movies.

The Bucheon International Fantasy Film Festival also hopes to invite North Korean directors and actors to Korea to participate in the film festival, but is still waiting for an official reply.
