KAFFNY call for submissions open through our exclusive partner Film Freeway, for our 8th annual festival in October. Regular deadline July 15th!
KAFFNY is the first and only film festival in New York City showcasing the diversity of Korean American and Korean diasporic perspectives in film. Since its inception in 2007 at the Anthology Film Archives, KAFFNY has continued to broaden its focus on emerging filmmakers to include international films by Korean and as well as non-Korean filmmakers.
Featuring contemporary films, docs, and classics, the Korean Film Series kicks off this Sunday at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in conjunction with the first full-scale American exhibition on the art of the Joseon dynasty, not to be missed! The series continues Wednesdays in April. Visit koreanfilmseries.tumblr.com for complete details.
