The heads of the Estonian and South Korean film associations, Edith Sepp-Dallas and Insoo Kim, are meeting in Tallinn today to sign a cooperation memorandum between their countries' motion pictures industries.

"The signing of this cooperation agreement is very important for the Estonian Film Institute," Sepp-Dallas said in a press release.

She said ties between Estonian and South Korean filmmakers are already close.

The event comes ahead of an EU-South Korea cultural cooperation working group meeting in Brussels on December 5.

In the ongoing Black Nights Film Festival, Estonia's biggest film event of the year, four South Korean films are being screened, including renowned director Kim Ki-Duk's controversial "Möbius" and Chung Ji-Young's political drama "National Security."
