Popular actress Ha Ji-won collected her first Best Actress award at the 5th University Film Festival of Korea, Tuesday.

Ha starred in the blockbuster disaster film ``Haeundae'' and the melodrama ``Closer to Heaven'' this year, proving both her box office appeal and powerful acting skills. This was her first acting award in her 14-year career.

Actor Ha Jeong-woo, who appeared in the hit film ``Take Off,'' was named Best Actor. Bong Joon-ho received the Best Director prize for ``Mother.''

The results were taken from a survey of 980 college students majoring in film. They were asked to name the Film of the Year, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress.

``Take Off,'' a sports film inspired by the South Korean national ski jumping team, captured the Best Film award.

Rising Star awards were given to Kang Ji-hwan, the heartthrob lead actor of ``My Girlfriend Is an Agent,'' and actress Park Bo-young of ``Speed Scandal.''

Best Supporting Actor went to Jin Gu, who appeared in Bong's ``Mother,'' while Best Supporting Actress went to Kim Hae-suk, who starred in Park Chan-wook's Cannes Film Festival award-winning film ``Thirst.''

The film festival opened at CGV Yeongdeungpo Times Square Tuesday and runs through Thursday.

하지원 첫 여우주연상

인기배우 하지원이 화요일 제5회 대한민국 대학영화제에서 첫 여우주연상을 수상했다.

하지원은 올해 블록버스터 `해운대'와 멜로드라마 `내 사랑 내 곁에'의 주연을 맡아 자신의 매력과 뛰어난 연기력을 선보인 바 있다. 이는 그녀의 연기생활 14년 동안 처음 받은 상이었다.

히트 필름 `국가대표'에 출연한 하정우가 남우주연상을 수상했다. 영화 `마더'를 감독한 봉준호는 감독상 수상의 영예를 안았다.

이 같은 결과는 영화를 전공하는 980명의 대학생을 대상으로 한 설문조사에 따른 것이다.

실제 한국 국가대표 스키 점핑팀을 모델로 한 `국가대표'는 작품상을 받았다.

남녀 신인상은 `7급 공무원'의 강지환과 `과속스캔들'의 박보영에게 돌아갔다.

남녀 조연상은 `마더'의 진구와 박찬욱 감독의 칸느영화제 수상작 `박쥐'의 김해숙에게 주어졌다.

화요일 CGV 영등포 타임스퀘어에서 개막된 이번 영화제는 목요일까지 계속된다.
