The film "Café Noir" by critic-turned-director Jung Sung-il and starring Moon Jung-hee has been invited to the Bright Future section of the 39th annual International Rotterdam Film Festival in the Dutch city.

Moon's agency said it is the actress' second film to be invited to Rotterdam, the first being "Falling Season" in 2002.

The festival is one of the leading non-competition film festivals dedicated to introducing new directors and films to the global industry and serving as a global movie marketplace. But it also has a competitive element with the VPRO Tiger Awards Competition.

Several Korean films have won Tigers, such as "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well" by Hong Sang-soo in 1997, "Jealousy is My Name" by Park Chan-ok in 2003, and "Breathless" by Yang Ik-june in 2009.
