Dongguk University Film Festival (DUFF), which is a graduation film festival of Dongguk University from the Department of Film & Digital Media of Dongguk University and Graduate School, was held from January 26th to 28th at Lee Hae-rang Art Theater. On this film festival period, everyone could watch the movies released on the festival for free. Every year, DUFF has different names. This year, another name of the film festival is “PERIOD,” which indicates the end of the seniors’ school life as they graduate and also dream the new starting point.
The film festival consisted of six sections that are from the letter of “PERIOD” as its theme. Each section (each letter) has four to five films. During three days of the festival, the films of each section are shown twice in a different time slot and day. This year, 25 films are screened. Moreover, after watching movies, there was a Guest Visit (GV) time, which is Q&A section between the directors and the actors and the audience. Choi Jeong-su (Freshman, Department of Film and Video) said, “I really enjoyed this film festival as I could watch unique and independent films which were produced by seniors.”
Ha Eun-ji (Senior, Department of Film and Video), the general manager of the festival, said, “Since the films that are screened on DUFF are produced by Donggukians, it means a lot. Everything that was required to making films is arranged and made by students. All films are independent,” she added, “when making the films and hosting the film festival, many people from different areas such as technology team, promotion team, and design team are needed as staffs. Everyone put forth their efforts in order to prepare the festival. Thus, I hope the audience could enjoy the films even though the movies are not commercial films.”
Beside the films, the audience could enjoy DUFF in other ways as it conducted a variety of events such as providing the photo zone and free snacks throughout the festival to the audience. The flea market was also ongoing. Almost 400 people came to DUFF according to the general manager of the festival.
