Georgia Film Critics honor ‘Parasite’

Jan 13,2020
Director Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” swept the top four awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film - at the Georgia Film Critics Association (Gafca) on Sunday, local time.

The Golden Globe winner “1917” was also a big winner, having received three Gafca awards for Best Cinematography, Best Production Design and Best Original Score.

After its success at award ceremonies big and small around the world over the past year, the local film industry is awaiting the announcement of the Academy Award nomination on Monday to see how the Korean film fares. “Parasite” has already been shortlisted for Best International Feature Film.
