Hotels along the Han River are fully occupied.

The French producer said that we have to prepare a press kit with information and pictures about the movie. We were very confused. We went to Venice with nearly 100 posters and we were informed that there were 1800 journalists. Each had a pigeon hole and movie producers put their movie information in each one. Journalists then had to choose the movies they wanted to watch. To impress the media, many producers made beautiful books about … [Read more...] about Choi Voi Director: Support our films like you support our football!
