    The Seoul Metro is holding an open call for entries for the 12th Seoul Metro International Film Festival (SMIFF). Anyone interested in cinema and the subway can submit their 90-second video.

    The SMIFF is accepting both domestic and international entries. One of the criteria is that the videos should be understood without sound and dialogue as they will be screened in subways and stations. Domestic entries are limited to content about the Seoul Metro, while international entries are not limited to any particular theme.

    Entries will be accepted from May 10 to July 1 via Festhome (http://www.festhome.com), and this year’s international entries will be co-hosted by Barcelona’s TMB and Subtravelling. For more details, visit the Seoul Metro International Film Festival’s website (http://www.smiff.kr).

    The top 40 films that will be selected by festival programmers, film critics and other professionals will be disclosed to the public on July 15 via the festival’s website.

    The final four prize-winning films from domestic and international entries will be determined by a public vote. Winners will be awarded prize money worth KRW 7 million and prizes, and the prize-winning film will be screened at Barcelona Subway Film Festival and Denmark Copenhagen Short Film Festival.
