This year's Jecheon International Music and Film Festival takes place in the North Chungcheong Province city from Aug. 13 to 18, featuring 101 films about music from 25 countries.
"Try to Remember" by Korean director Kim Dae-hyun opens the festival. The documentary is about the Kim Sisters, the nation's first girl band who were active half a century ago.
They were also the first Asian singers to perform in Las Vegas, causing quite a stir there.
The competition section called "World Music Film Today" features seven movies including "Beatles" that revolves around boy fans of the legendary band, and "Keep on Keepin' on," a documentary about a blind young jazz pianist.
The movie that wins the W10 million award for best film closes the festival (US$1=W1,170).
Tickets are available on the event's website at http://www.jimff.org.
