My favorite New York-based film festival of the year is the New York Asian Film Festival. It has a special place in my heart for a lot of reasons. Among the smaller, more tightly-focused festivals, though, the New York Korean Film Festival is pretty high up there. (I love me some Korean movies.) And now that Subway Cinema, the team behind NYAFF, is behind NYKFF as well… well, all the better.
This year, the fest takes place at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, which is a pretty awesome space if you’ve never been there. Between the 6th and 11th of November, they’ll be showing nine films, six of which will have guests in attendance (including Ryoo Seung-Wan, who is fantastic)). I’ve already seen a couple of the films, The Beauty Inside and Assassination, and their quality bodes well for the rest of the lineup. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing some of the rest of these things. And if you check back closer to festival time, hopefully I’ll be sharing my thoughts on them once I have.
If you’re interested (and you should be), you can head over to the Museum of the Moving Image website and buy tickets. More information can be found there or in the full press release below.
