Tibetan filmmaker wins Korean prizes

Pema Tseden's 'Old Dog' rounds up three awards

SEOUL — Tibetan-Chinese filmmaker Pema Tseden’s “Old Dog” nabbed three awards at the Cinema Digital Seoul Festival, which wrapped Tuesday.

He received $55,000 cash prize in total.

Pic took the top Red Chameleon Award, as well as the Green Chameleon, given out by Korean crix and journos, and the White Chameleon, awarded by audience members.

The tragicomic pic turns on an aging dog who is sold by a son against the wishes of his father.

Sri Lankan helmer Sanjeewa Pushpakumara’s debut feature “Flying Fish” won the Blue Chameleon Award, given out by international film crix. Pic won the top prize at the Rotterdam fest this year.

Three Korean rookie filmmakers — Choi Jin-Seong, Yang Jungho and Park Jong-chul — won the chance to have their next projects developed with CJ Entertainment, host company for the fest, in the Butterfly section.

Opening with helmer Hong Sang-soo’s “The Day He Arrives,” the seven-day fest screened 100 films from 32 countries.
