Director Kim Ki-duk's "Arirang" won the grand prix in the Films On Arts Competition among 12 contenders in the New Horizons International Film Festival, according to the film's overseas distributor Finecut on Wednesday.
In its 11th year, the film fest was held in Wroclaw, Poland on July 21-31, screening over 500 movies from more than 50 countries.
