Special Jury Award (with monetary award of KRW 10,000,000 and a trophy)

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The Discovery section of the Seoul International Women's Film Festival is a competition-based one and, in particular, the awards were to be given to the first or second films made by female directors. We mainly discussed the brave attempts of the directors, how well they expressed and completed their own stories, and how new their perspectives were. As jurors and spectators, it was a very intense experience and enjoyable for us to talk about how much we were inspired by the bold new stories and the timely, sharp-eyed films. Outcry and Whisper, directed by WEN Hai, ZENG Jinyan, and Trish McADAM, was selected for SIWFF's Special Jury Award this year. The film piercingly captures the movement of the contemporary era by confronting the political situation, the personal records within society, and the many faces of those who resist, and it won the heart of the jury. -- Jury of the Finals: KIM Hyun Gyung, Éléonore WEBER, and PARK Jiwan
