The official poster for the 23rd SIWFF visualizes this year’s slogan, “A Caring Reflection” in a succinct and intuitive. The creator of the poster, Park Shinwoo wanted the SIWFF to be a moment of caring for the self, for others and for reflection, mentioning that she tried to root for various women’s journeys with love and care in this poster. The image of the dark pink arms embracing long-haired women against the backdrop of the orange color symbolizes the “caring”; the face and wavy hair of the woman who is turning around and looking straight ahead expresses the message of “reflection” intuitively. This tender but powerful image of the poster delivers the message that the SIWFF embraces and encourages all female filmmakers, their enthusiasm and vigor.
