GIFF Short Film Fund


With the aim of contributing to the development of local film ecosystem and vitalizing film production, GIFF offers a production support program. This year again, GIFF will provide support for three short films. Selected films will get production grants and screening opportunities at the 3rd GIFF. The films selected last year – One Snowy Day in Spring, Rats in the House, Exclamation mark and Question mark, Meanwhile– will be screened this year. We hope that GIFF’s production support program will help more films come into the world so that audiences will have a chance to meet more diverse and refreshing works.


10 million KRW for three short films
