London Korean Film Festival Final Screening

The London Korean Film Festival was brought to a close with a Screening of Im Sang Soo's 'The Housemaid' at the ICA.

 

The Housemaid is a remake of a 60's classic and a worthy contestant of the 2010 Cannes Palme d'Or.

 

2010 marked the fifth anniversary of the London Korean Film Festival.

 

A video of the event can be found here, (Korean language for the first 20 seconds).

 

This year's festival included over 20 films as well as Short Films and Animation. Following recent traditions, the festival also toured the UK, this year visiting, Cardiff, Belfast and Cambridge.

 

The Festival was visited by some of Korea's leading Director's including, Lee Jeong-boom, Kim Jee-woon, Jang Jin and Im Sang-soo who each gave talks and lectures on their films and work.

 

The 2010 LKFF included a Jang Jin Retrospective, a spotlight on women, war, thriller, action and drama and mise-en-scene.

 

The London Korean Film Festival is organised by The Korean Cultural Centre UK, with the very generous support of the Korean Film Council, the Korean Film Archive, KOCCA and Asiana Airlines.
