    Director Hong Sang-soo's new movie "The Novelist's Film" has been invited to compete at the Berlin International Film Festival.

    The festival's organizers on Wednesday announced 18 films that will compete for the Golden Bear. It runs from Feb. 10 through 22.

    Hong will be competing at the festival for the third year running.

    The movie deals with the chance encounter of an actress with a female novelist who tries to persuade her to make a film with her.

    The black-and-white movie was filmed on the outskirts of Seoul for two weeks in March of last year and also stars Hong's muse Kim Min-hee. Kim won the Silver Bear for Best Actress for her role in Hong's film "On the Beach at Night Alone" in 2017.
