‘Curator of the Year’ is a film program that JIMFF invite filmmakers, including directors and music director who played key roles in the world’s music film history to select their representative titles and the music films that inspired their creativity, and ask them to write reviews of them to introduce their selection. Following last year’s music director Cho Sungwoo, director Mike Figgis of Leaving Las Vegas (1995) will participate as ‘Curator of the Year.’ He selected Leaving Las Vegas (1995) and Internal Affairs (1990) as his masterpieces and six other works that inspired him, including Elevator to the Gallows (1958), Follow (2014), In the Heat of the Night (1967), and Cold Blood (1967).
Along with the screening of the films, Jecheon International Music & Film Festival holds the director's Master Class as well. It will be a priceless opportunity for a participant to watch Leaving Las Vegas that is still deeply loved by many fans even after 20 years of its release, in a theater with the director's lecture.
