That 1990s style animated banner.. THE PYONGYANG INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. I bet a ton of celebs visit that!


Red carpet doesn't get redder than this.

That said they had some surprising entries:

> In 2006, the Swedish horror comedy Frostbiten was shown at the festival, the first foreign horror film to ever be shown in North Korea.


The Kim family has always placed a high priority on making movies. I believe it started out as a propaganda angle, as it has been in most communist countries (well...anywhere, really) and has sense moved onto full on fandom. The DPRK spends a good chunk of change on film production. Kim Jong-Il went so far as to kidnap a South Korean film director and actress.
