The Seoul International Extreme-Short Image & Film Festival (SESIFF) 2013 will take place in the Dongjak-gu and Gangnam-gu areas of Seoul from September 26 to 30.
In its 5th year, the film festival will showcase 106 extreme short films from 28 countries around the world which will compete for awards in categories like the "SESIFF International Competition", "Mobile Film International Competition'" and "10-minute Film International Competition". This year, the international film festival will hold a "Bloody Night", a newly introduced program where only horror and thriller films will be screened. What is particularly unique about this new program is that the films will be screened in a bar and not in a normal movie theatre, allowing the audience to enjoy a more fun and relaxed atmosphere for the screening. Some screenings are free of charge while others will cost 5,000 won and can be purchased on-site.
Films at SESIFF will tend to run around 10 minutes in length. Some images and films can be checked out at the Online Theatre on the SESIFF's homepage.
