Filminute & CineCoup are pleased to announce that Nuri Jeong has won the 2018 CineCoup Award for her film EDGE OF SEVENTEEN. Five films ended up being the subject of intense discussion and debate, with Nuri’s film prevailing on account of her original and masterful direction, the film’s strong recognition by both the jury and public (winner of Best Filminute 2018), the appeal of the genre, and anticipation of the film’s narrative & commercial viability.
The 2018 CineCoup Award includes resources and support from both CineCoup and Filminute towards the development of a pitch-ready, feature film project from Nuri’s work.
Congratulations to Nuri and her team!
