Sea Fog will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

According to the distribution company NEW on July 23, Sea Fog received an invitation to premiere at the Festival′s Gala Presentation.

TIFF′s art director Cameron Bailey commented that Sea Fog is a dramatic film that has an essential and emotional power to grab audiences, and that he is proud to be able to introduce Sea Fog to audiences at TIFF.

Director Shim Seong Bo of Sea Fog said about the news, “I′m looking forward to showcasing at TIFF this story of ordinary sailors living their lives in Korea′s 1998 economic crisis. I′m also very curious on whether foreign audiences will be able to catch the context of the film.”

Sea Fog has already marked great success overseas. Rights were sold to Japan, France, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore after the release of its 10-minute promotion video.

The movie is about six sailors who decide to carry stowaways on their ship through a sea fog. It premieres in Korea on August 13.
