Since 2015, the Ulju Mountain Film Festival (UMFF) has presented images of man and nature centered on mountain culture. Again this year, the professional production support program 'Ulju Summit' and the public documentary production support program 'UljuMentary' will announce their outcomes.
The '2019 Ulju Summit' will present as world premieres the three fiction shorts and one animation short that received production support last year. The media education program 'UljuMentary' began in 2018 and is hosted with the Ulsan Community Media Center to provide production education and support to the public. It is a compound word formed with 'Ulju' and 'Documentary', and provides an arena for those of us living in Ulju Gun of Ulsan Metropolitan city to personally express our lives. This year, four teams were selected amid fierce competition. Under mentor guidance, they completed 15-minute short documentaries that will be screened for the first time at UMFF.
The production support programs of UMFF Project will present an array of films that deal with various lives in nature, with trials and conquest, yearning and adventure, challenge and failure, and conflict and coexistence. It will be a program that will put UMFF on the map and broaden its scope. The 2020 Ulju Summit projects selected this year will also be an attraction that will enrich next year’s UMFF.
