Since last year, I’ve been wanting to go to Jeonju for the JIFF or the Jeonju International Film Festival. Knowing that there are entries from Philippines, the more that I want to go there to show my support to Filipino film makers. But last year, I can’t even read Korean well, so it would be very risky if I travel alone. So, I promised my self that for the next JIFF, I shouldn’t miss it. But here I am still in school, JIFF runs only until May 6. And I should give up now, there’s nothing more that I can do.
1.] I don’t have enough money to go. 2.] I applied for the free bus to Jeonju, but failed to qualify for the tickets. Seoul to Jeonju takes about 2 hours by bus. 3.] Ticketing is on-line, and everything should be paid using a credit card, which I don’t have as of the moment. 4.]I had a part-time job last saturday, so even If I have some money, I still can’t go.
My apologies to Mr.Kidlat Tahimik, for not being there to offer you a warm applause.
I am very proud that you are one of the chosen few film masters to inspire more artists to create and support more movies.
