Korean Film Nights 2017
Korean Film Nights has returned!
This year we've divided the programme into three distinct mini-seasons, each comprised of six films focused on a unique theme. What's more, we have invited special guest programmers to offer their selections for each season, along with a different guest speaker each week to offer insight into the film and on its importance in the wider context of Korean cinema.
All screenings take place at the Korean Cultural Centre UK and are free to attend (booking required)
We kick off this year's Korean Film Nights with a look at some of the best Korean horror to have emerged over recent years. The season is programmed by Dr Colette Balmain, a Senior Lecturer in Film, TV and Media at Kingston University, who has put together a chilling lineup of significant works in modern horror for us to explore. Join us as we delve into the dark heart of K-cinema...
