Starts Tonight!

The 13th Annual New York Korean Film Festival showcases the nation€™'s cinema doing what it does best: the crime thriller, the romantic fantasy, and feverish erotica. The Peninsula€™'s filmmakers bend genre cinema to a uniquely Korean pulse and purpose, making the countrys national film industry the most vibrant in East Asia.

 

More premieres, filmmakers, and celebrity guests than ever

The Korea Society has also invited an exceptional group of Korean guests, including star director Ryoo Seung-Wan and producers Kang Hye-jung and Park Jung (Veteran); directors Shin Suwon (Madonna), Lee Do-yun (Confession), Kang Hyo-jin (Wonderful Nightmare), Oh Seung-uk (The Shameless), and Hong Won-chan (Office); and actress Koh Ah-Sung.

 

The New York Korean Film Festival is a program of The Korea Society, the Museum of the Moving Image, and Subway Cinema. Major support is provided by the Korea Foundation.
