  Darcy's Korean Film Page - 1999
At present, Korea's short film industry is enjoying a renaissance, thanks to expanding sources of funding, increased public interest, accolades from abroad, and a series of remarkable films shot by young, talented directors.
This is the second film this year to portray North Koreans in a sympathetic light; the last director to try this did so in the 1960s, and was subsequently jailed for his efforts.
What makes this film so bad is not so much the cast, chosen from a growing population of Western actors working in Korea (although in truth their acting is quite terrible), but rather the script, which is packed with more tired cliches than I ever knew existed.

 Film Industry in China -- china.org.cn
The film industry was severely restricted and no film was shot in the period 1966 and 1972.
However, these films encountered more and more criticism, in particular for their stylized form and neglect of audience response and absence of representation of the spiritual bewilderment of the people during the transformation of Chinese society.
Their serious attitude toward the art of film and life was to create youthful vigor in China's film industry for the start of the new millennium.

 British film industry - Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
One of the most successful film industries in the world, its wise and far-sighted producers realised in the mid-80’s that people were afraid of any form of innovation or originality in the cinema, and so endlessly re-make the same 3 movies.

 The Canadian Film Distribution Industry
In general, the majority of films released theatrically are not profitable-- a variation of the 20/80 rule where 20% of the films released by the distributor generate 80% of the profits, and as such, the importance of maintaining such portfolios.
Since film producers are interested in maximizing returns, they would seek to allocate distribution rights to a distributor with past performance or reputation for successful promotion, since the producer's revenues are contingent on the distributor's performance.
With a glut of film properties in the theatrical market (Canada currently sees an average of 200 releases per year, or four for every week of the year) and a generally declining audience, the exhibitor is inclined to 'turnover' films quickly.

 Despite incentives, official optimism, S.F. film industry takes tumble in ’06 - Examiner.com
A booming industry in the 1990s — with a production costs high of $461 million in 1996 — the industry began to decline in 1999, reaching an all-time low in 2003 and the first half of 2004, when no major picture was shot in San Francisco.
Coyote said the film industry is “bottom-line driven” and that San Francisco cannot compete with other states and other locations, such as Vancouver, Canada, that have a lower cost of living and offer better cost-breaks for film productions.
Coyote, and other film industry insiders, say the only way to revive the local film industry is for the state to step up and adopt a competitive film incentive program of its own, making it more affordable to shoot films.

 A Short History of Korean Film
Although accomplished films continued to be made up until the end of the decade, such restrictive policies would ultimately have a severe effect on the industry's creativity.
This film -- the tale of a manipulative housemaid who seduces her master -- transgresses the laws of contemporary cinema to the same extent that its heroine tears apart the Confucian order of her household.
The end result of this is that by the late 1980s a new generation of young producers had entered the film industry, and their new approaches to filmmaking would eventually have a major effect on Korean cinema.
