The Wildflower Film Awards Korea is a grassroots effort to recognize the achievements of Korean independent and low-budget films. Our primary aim is to create more publicity in Korea and abroad for filmmakers working outside of the mainstream commercial film industry.
The awards ceremony for the 1st Wildflower Film Awards was held on April 1, 2014 at Literature House in Seoul. Since then, the awards have been held every spring. The 8th edition is scheduled to take place in May 2021.
To be eligible for awards consideration, films must have a budget of less than one billion won (~$900,000), and receive a theatrical release in the previous 12 months. In 2020, a total of 83 narrative features and 34 documentaries were eligible for consideration.
