    The Pyeongchang International Peace Film Festival starts its six-day run late next month.
    The annual festival, now in its fourth year, will feature a total of 88 films from 28 countries and will be shown at outdoor theaters and camping sites in Daegwallyeong, Gangwon Province.
    The opening film is "Olga" by French director Elie Grappe. It is set against the backdrop of the Euromaidan protests against the Ukrainian government's sudden decision not to sign an agreement that would have integrated the country more closely with the European Union.
    The film was screened as part of Critics' Week at the Cannes Film Festival last year and won the SACD Prize for best screenplay.
    The festival runs from June 23-28.
