JIMFF Forum -
100 Years of Korean Cinema, Songs of the Times   Program Event Book

Music was a crucial element of music from the early phase of the near-century history of Korean film. The history of film theme music started from the mid 1920s, and music films emerged alongside the employment of talkies in the 1930s. The Blue Hill and Popular Songs in the Past 50 Years are particularly invaluable works of historically significant music films. Both were recently excavated though they were known to have been lost, interestingly portraying the collaboration between the pop music of that time and films. Despite the frustration in their state of preservation, both are sufficiently charming works when it comes to watching film through music and vice versa. The second part of JIMFF Forum will examine the production trend of contemporary Korean music films and the film-historical significance of the film Radio Star replete with the 2000’s nostalgia. Celebrating the centenary of Korean film, this program is co-hosted by Jecheon International Music & Film Festival, Korean Film Council, The Committee for Korean Film 100 Years, Korean Film Archive and Korean Association of Film Critics.
