The Grand Bell Awards (Hangul: 대종상 영화제; RR: Daejongsang Yeonghwajae), also known as Daejong Film Awards, is an awards ceremony presented annually by The Motion Pictures Association of Korea for excellence in film in South Korea.[1][2]

Though the festival has often been marred by controversy, stemming from bribery and political pressure, the Grand Bell Awards retain prestige as the oldest continuous film awards held in South Korea, and have been called the Korean equivalent of the American Academy Awards.[3][4][5]

History[edit]

The ceremony has been hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Information since 1962. The awards ceased for a couple years beginning in 1969, but were revived in 1972 after the establishment of the Korea Motion Picture Promotion Association, in an effort to stimulate the then stagnant film industry.[6]
