Since 2002 this biennial festival has been run as a true international festival welcoming films from around the world, whereas previously the event was reserved for ‘non-aligned and other developing countries’. Koryo Tours has worked closely with the festival organisers to expand and improve the range of films shown at the festival and thus seen by large numbers of the DPRK population (over a million tickets were sold for the 2008 event). We have arranged for many films from around the world to be entered in competition, the most well-known include ‘Bend it like Beckham’ ‘Mr. Bean’, ‘The March of the Penguins, and 'Bride and Prejudice'. We also take our tourists to the festival and are able to attend the main ceremonies as well as see Korean and international films with a local audience.
