Welcome to the London Korean Film Festival 2015
The London Korean Film Festival will return to celebrate its tenth year in November 2015 at the BFI Southbank. The festival will open on 2 November at the BFI Southbank and run for about two weeks at the most attractive cinemas including Regent Street Cinema, Picturehouse Central and Odeon Covent Garden.
As always, a wide range of outstanding films from Korea - from archive classics to new cinema, from box office hits to small hidden treasures - will be presented alongside the best of both fiction and documentary, with films by both familiar names and rising stars. The London Korean Film Festival is a unique chance for film-lovers in the UK to experience the vibrancy of the Korean film industry, and we hope to show something for everyone, both adults and children alike!
The 2014 festival opened with the European premiere of Kundo: Age of the Rampant (dir. Youn Jong-bin) and closed with the UK premiere of Revivre (dir. Im Kwon-taek) at Odeon West End, featuring red carpet arrivals of Actor Kang Dong-won, Director Yoon Jong-bin and Producer Han Jae-duk for Kundo: Age of the Rampant, and Actor Ahn Sungki, Actor/Director Jung Woo-sung for Revivre. The festival was presented in London, Norwich, Hebden Bridge and Aberystwyth, showing 55 features and shorts and enjoyed its biggest audience turnout with over 7,000 people across the UK.
We are excited to meet you through our newly launched website, with the full 2015 festival programme to follow.
The 10th London Korean Film Festival is organised by the Korean Cultural Centre UK with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism, Korean Film Council and Korean Film Archive.
