Coralie Fargeat honored in South Korea for her film Revenge
Coralie Fargeat, director of Revenge, has been awarded the prestigious Bucheon Choice Grand Prize at the 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) in South Korea.
The French filmmaker traveled to South Korea on July 20 for a lightning 46-hour trip to attend the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival and receive her award, as well as to present Revenge to audiences at four screenings—with theaters literally packed to the doors in each case—and to take part in publicity for the film with the South Korean media. The Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) is Asia's biggest genre film festival, with 290 films from 53 countries showcased at the 2018 event. The Bucheon Choice Grand Prize is the festival's most important award, with the winner chosen by the festival jury, which this year comprised Barbara Crampton, Hiroshi Takahashi, Mark Adams, Young-joo Byun, and Kang-woo Kim. Revenge was unanimously voted as the award-winner. This film, which has only just been released in Japan (after its presentation at the French Film Festival in Japan in Yokohama organized by UniFrance), has been sold in 54 territories to date, with international sales handled by the French company Charades). It will hit South Korean screens in the fall, released by Company L, after which it will be offered in digital broadcast via the Cable TV VOD platform.
