Korea's only mountain film festival is set to kick off its fourth year in the southern city of Ulsan next month.
The Ulju Mountain Film Festival is dedicated to promoting films about mountains, adventure and exploration, nature and the environment.
This year the festival will feature 31 films from 20 countries in the competition section alone, selected from among 434 films from 71 countries, from Sept. 6 to 10.
The organizers said almost every mountain-themed film from around the world was submitted to compete in the event.
London-based film director Michal Sulima's documentary film "Piano to Zanskar" will open the festival. It depicts the journey of a retired piano tuner from London who attempts to deliver an old piano to a remote Himalayan town.
