Special Focus Forum: A Slice of Everyday Life

Everyday Life

In a time when cinema has become more and more of a vehicle for escapism, why do we still return to the stories of everyday lives? What is it about the work of Ken Loach, Yasujiro Ozu and Hong Sangsoo that continues to strike a chord with audiences around the world?

This year’s panel discussion, moderated by Guardian and Financial Times journalist Danny Leigh, is dedicated to the festival’s special focus strand, ‘A Slice of Everyday Life’, which celebrates films that pay attention to the familiar yet poetic stories of ordinary people, capturing the intimate and subtle drama of our day-to-day existence. The forum will be an opportunity to hear from South Korean and UK film industry professionals, programmers and filmmakers alike, adding further context to the screenings included in the strand and shining a light on the idea of ‘everydayness’ on screen.
