The 2nd Chungju International Martial Arts and Action Film Festival will open, 22-26 October, 2020, in South Korea.
Held for the first time in August last year in Cheongju and Chungju the event was the only film festival in martial arts and modern action genre in Korea.
The Covid-19 pandemic has meant pushing back this year’s 2nd Festival to October and films will be screened both online and offline via Wavve, an online screening platform, as well as at drive-in theatres and cinemas in the city. In addition, the Festival’s executive committee is taking all necessary health and safety preventive measures.
Under the slogan of ‘The Spirit of Martial Arts, Blossom into a Movie’, a large number of martial arts and action films, which are yet to be introduced in Korea, will be shown as part of a collaboration, including with The Fighting Spirit Film Festival in the UK and the Universal Martial Arts Film Festival in France.
Over 70 martial arts and action films will be screened in six sections, including Korean Action Films: Hall of Fame, Special Show in Honour of Bruce Lee, World Action Films, Action! Indi-days, Family Action Films, and Programmer Choice.
