Park Namok Award has been newly established in 2008. The award honors the Korean woman director who has most stimulated the Korean film industry. The winner is selected by the IWFFIS Executive Committee among the directors of films released in the last year. As a result of deliberation over the theatrically released films from February 2007 to February 2008, Yim Soon-rye, the director of Forever the Moment has been chosen as the first awardee.
