PRESS RELEASE
JURIES: SEOUL’S JOHN PARK IS JURY PRESIDENT, FILM CRAFT LOTUS & NEW DIRECTOR LOTUS, AT ADFEST 2013
BANGKOK: One of Korea’s most acclaimed commercial directors, John Park, is joining ADFEST 2013 as Jury President of Film Craft Lotus and New Director Lotus.  


Currently based in Seoul, Park is the Founder & Director of Addict Media Films and is considered one of Korea’s new wave directors.


“ADFEST originates in the Asia Pacific, which means regional creatives need not be evaluated and recognized by the values or standards of other regions. It is therefore both enlightening and exciting to discover and recognize unique voices of the region as the Jury President of Film Craft Lotus and New Director Lotus at ADFEST 2013.”
 

Park was born in Korea but grew up in Los Angeles from the age of 11. He studied at UCLA before enrolling at the Art Center College of Design to pursue his passion for directing. As a director at Addict Media Films, Park’s recent works have garnered more than 17 medals in international festivals like Cannes, The One Show and ADFEST.
 

“John represents a new breed of directors emerging from South Korea. He tells universally relevant stories that are deeply rooted in local experiences, and ADFEST is delighted to welcome him at the helm of this year’s Film Craft and New Director Jury,” says Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST.
 

Park says: “ADFEST not only recognizes creative excellence in the region, but it provides a learning opportunity for participants to see and discuss some of the best works in light of local culture and heritage. It also celebrates the region’s brightest young creatives, and provides a great stepping stone into the industry.”
