This forum will examine the rich craft of film production– from logis- tical processes to creative aspects. We have the two most renowned film producers from Korea and one from the UK: Lee Jun-dong (Po- etry, A Girl At My Door), Han Jae-duk (Kundo: Age of the Rampant and Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Time) and Nik Powell (The Cry- ing Game). Throughout this forum, we hope to gain some insights about the specificity of the Korean film industry via the lens of top producers perhaps in comparison with that of the UK. Further, we can begin to imagine the possibilities of strengthening the Korean film industry in a global context.
