Fresh from its European premiere at the recent Berlinale, Cyborg will have its North American premiere at the Austin, Texas, festival when it brings down the curtain on the festival on March 17.
Park is the director of such critical and commercial hit films as Oldboy and Sympathy For Lady Vengeance. His latest film, a stylistic change of pace, has already opened theatrically in his native South Korea.
'Park Chan-wook is easily one of the most exciting filmmakers working in Asia today, and we can't wait to share his new vision with the SXSW audiences,' said SXSW Film Festival Producer Matt Dentler
I'm A Cyborg, But That's OK joins a list of newly added feature films on the lineup, including D.J. Caruso's upcoming Paramount Pictures release Disturbia.
Other new additions to the schedule include: Eric Chaikin's documentary A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar, Kris Carr's documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer, and Shannon O'Rourke's documentary Maybe Baby.
The festival commences March 9, with Scott Frank's The Lookout. The conference portion (March 10-13) of SXSW has been described as a four-day crash course on guerilla filmmaking and marketing for every level of filmmaker from novice to veteran.
