MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Film has always been one of the best ways to express strong feelings, both for the filmmakers and the audience, and acting as one of the most effective and communicative ways to tell messages. Through International Film Festival for Comedy, Romance, and Musical, we hope to facilitate creative filmmakers to show their artwork, encourage talented people to express their feelings through comedy, romance, and musical films, provide more positive life through healthy laugh, good music, and empathic comedy, and give indirect, yet effective ways to express our feelings, as well as giving an introspective lesson.
Through comedy films, we hope to fill the world of bitterness with laughter, build positive feelings, entertain people, and encourage a better community through good and healthy laugh.
Romantic movie is a media to show love, and to impress that love at any way, possess its own beauty and appealing characteristic.
