Launched in 2005, Jecheon International Music & Film Festival (JIMFF) strives to be both a celebration of film set in the beautiful landscapes of Jecheon City and exhilarating music shared and enjoyed by everyone of all generations and musical tastes.
The cozy and scenic host city, Jecheon, is located in Chungcheongbuk province in central Korea. Jecheon is most famous for Cheongpung-ho, a lake that captivates tourists with natural beauty that is reminiscent of traditional Korean landscape paintings. "World Music Film Today", JIMFF's sole competition section, will present films from around the world this year. The jury will award an outstanding film with the Grand Prize among the most contemporary selections related to music regardless of genre.
Other sections will introduce the various aspects of music cinema and a number of musical performances staged outdoors on the shores of Cheongpung Lake. The Jecheon Film Music Award honors film musicians who have had significant influence on Korean film and music culture and the Jecheon Film Music Academy is a program designed for specialized education about film music.
